There’s a great story which accompanied this race. Bernie Ecclestone (team owner) was extremely glad when it looked as if Patrese would win the race. But when he spun he was so angry he just left the race immediately, and sat on a plane home to England. When he arrived at the airport he was greeted and was congratulated for winning the Monaco GP. He first thought it was a joke, but they explained that Patrese indeed had WON in Monaco after all.
