The season is blighted by unreliability as Williams and Honda get to grips with turbo power for the first time. When the engine holds together, the car is quick and Rosberg takes a brilliant victory in the USA GP in Dallas. Jacques Laffite endures a disappointing season. He scores just 5 points to Rosberg’s 20.5 and the team announces in September that Nigel Mansell will replace him in ’85.

SEASON HIGHLIGHT

The first victory for Williams-Honda, taken by Rosberg in Dallas.

DID YOU KNOW?

The race morning warm-up was held so early in Dallas that Jacques Laffite turned up in the pits wearing his pyjamas!
