24 July 1983.

Qualifying: 1:08.42(1); 1:10.41 (4).

Grid: Pole position

Result: Second.

A dry first session proved decisive. “We had been out on old tyres at the beginning and I was just getting the car balanced. Then we put on some new tyres and I went out and set a time.

On the second lap, I was already in pole position.”A dry-wet second session left it undisturbed. Brundle made an incisive start and commanded Redgate, Jones hard in third.

Now Brundle had to handle the heat. On lap 8 he made a supreme effort to shed Senna and squeezed a gap of a second but Senna closed and set fastest lap. Brundle kept his nerve.

• Podium: Brundle 35m09s21. Senna at 00.40, Jones at 03.17.

• Fastest lap: Senna.

• Championship: Senna 106, Brundle 88, Jones 49
