Description

This F1 McLaren art is dedicated to one of the most contentious and significant GP starts ever. This is when the star of Ayrton Senna began to rise in F1, this is when Steven Bellof made a significant impact and this is when the first Monaco GP pole position for both McLaren MP4/2 and the TAG-Porsche engine, and Alain Prost scored his first of 4 victories in Monaco GP.

It started all with the heavy rain pouring in Monaco in the beginning of June in 1984. The start was delayed by 45 minutes due to bad weather conditions. When the green light was on, Prost kept his first position and hold it until he was passed by Nigel Mansell who led a F1 competition for the first time in his career. Mansell starts to increase the distance between him and Prost but unfortunately, he left the competition because of collision. This was the moment when the underdog racer of Toleman-Hart with Ayrton Senna behind the steering wheel quickly closed in. Senna was 13th on the pole and just started to show his legendary driving skills on wet surfaces.

But Senna wasn’t the only menace for Alain Prost and his McLaren MP4/2. The young and promising Stefan Bellof running the only naturally aspirated car get the 3rd position and quickly narrowed the distance between him and Senna.

At this moment Prost waived his hand to the stewards to stop the race due to bad driving conditions. Finally, it happened during lap 32 just after Prost was passed by Senna and his Toleman-Hart. Well, the FIA rules gave the victory to Prost because he led the competition at the lap prior the competition ending.
