Tough one, I know but here's mine (with summary kindly provided by someone else):
Monaco Grand Prix 1985
The Monaco Grand Prix was fourth event of the 1985 World Championship. In the time between the San Marino and Monaco events the Toleman team was able to find tires by buying out Spirit’s supply of Pirelli’s, meaning that Spirit dropped out. Part of the deal for it was that Toleman agreed to a three-year sponsorship with Benetton. The team ran Teo Fabi since Eddie Cheever was unable to escape his Alfa Romeo contract.
Senna took the pole position at this years Monaco Grand Prix, followed by Mansell and Alboreto. The start of the race showed Senna taking the front followed by Mansell, Alboreto and Prost. In the middle of the field Berger’s car was hit by Tambay and Johansson when his engine failed, all three of the cars retired early due to it. On the fourteenth lap Senna’s engine failed and so Alboreto took the lead for the next five laps. Riccardo Patrese and Nelson Piquet had a big accident at Ste Devote and left oil all over the road. Alboreto eventually ran into the oil and was cast wide and lost his lead to Prost. Lauda slipped off the track and stalled his car. Alboreto also ended up picking up a puncture from the earlier wreck and had to pit for new tires. Andrea de Cesaris took his spot but he was able to come back and reclaim his position and even take second place. Prost took the victory for the Monaco Grand Prix and Alboreto was able to hold on to second followed by de Angelis.
