The FISA had given Formula 1 teams and engineers quite a headache for the 1984 F1 season with a reduction of total petrol consumption in a Grand Prix from 250 to 220 litres. The main idea was to cut the ever growing performance of the turbocharged engines but Porsche together with Bosch seemed to have found a perfect compromise regarding injection and ignition. In addition McLarenÛs designer John Barnard created a very slim bottle-neck engine cover to optimize air flow over the chassis to the rear wing thus achieving very effective aerodynamics.

Alain Prost had returned from Renault to McLaren and became a tough nut for Niki Lauda winning seven races in 1984 compared to five wins for the Austrian. Winning the red-flagged Monaco race seemed to be a lucky victory for the Frenchman that Sunday but only half points were granted. A strong second half of the season gave Lauda a lead of 66 to 62.5 points over Prost when they came to Portugal for the final race. Alain Prost won 13 seconds ahead of his teammate but Lauda won the Championship by half a point.
