Alan visited the pits and returned to the track leader, however, the engine on his car continued to run rough. Three laps before the finish he caught up and walked Gilles Villeneuve from Ferrari. Jones came to finish second.1982 godgory was marked by intense struggle Alain Prost from Renault, Ricardo Patrese from Brabham and Didier pironi from Ferrari. Almost the entire distance, this trio was a single "train". At three laps to go Simple mistake on the exit of the tunnel and crashed the car.Patrese led the race. On the penultimate lap, the Italian launched at the hairpin. Leadership passed to me " happy, but on the last lap he ran out of fuel Forward unexpectedly left Andrea de Cesaris from Alfa Romeo and Derek Daly Williams. But they were not destined to reach the finish line the first one ran out of fuel, the second after colliding refused gearbox.Meanwhile, Patrese managed to get back on track and eventually crossed the finish line first. On the second and third places were classified pironi and de Cesaris.1988 yearon qualifying Ayrton Senna won a second and a half from his partner Alain Prost McLaren. Senna took the lead in the race from the first lap and quickly pulled away from Simple, which is stuck behind Gerhard Berger from Ferrari. Only at the 55th round Simple has managed to reach the second position, but by this time the advantage Senna was more than fifty seconds. Allen a couple of times to set a record lap, Ayrton decided to answer, but for 12 laps before the finish overdone and took off on the descent to the tunnel.Frustrated Brazilian two days looking for the representatives of McLaren. In Monaco, Senna never made a mistake and won all five races in which managed to participate.1992 yearon the year on all routes dominated Williams pilots. Here in Monaco and Nigel Mansell with the launch went ahead. For the first eight laps before the finish, the Briton felt the puncture and having a 30-second advantage over Ayrton hay from McLaren, decided to come into the pits. But there he was not expecting.Pit stop was delayed, and on the road Mansell returned the second. In a few circles Nigel on fresh tires eliminated the 5-second gap. But ahead of McLaren Brazilian, barely standing on the track, and could not.2004 gtmichael Schumacher quite easily won the first five races of the season. Only in Monaco, the pilot Ferrari has met with considerable resistance in the face of representatives of Renault's Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso. A pair of Renault led for 40 laps, while in the tunnel not crashed his car Alonso. Using the emergence of the safety car, the leaders made pit stop, and it was quicker mechanics Ferrari Schumacher got ahead of Trulli.The safety car was preparing to leave the track. Michael decided to warm up the tires and brakes, habitually accelerated, then braked sharply. But this maneuver was unexpected for Juan-Pablo Montoya, who followed the German, playing with a circle. From hitting the back of the Ferrari of Michael crashed into the wall of the tunnel, and then bounced to the opposite side.The lead went back to Trulli, who eventually won the only career victory.
