Notes Edit

  • Unlike the 1982 race, Nelson Piquet got to keep his 1st place after being disqualified from winning the previous year.
  • Keke Rosberg was disqualified for a push start in the pits, after his car momentarily caught fire during refueling. It was the second Brazilian GP in a row that Rosberg was disqualified from 2nd place after suffering the same fate in 1982. The FIA did not award second place place points to anyone.
  • Elio de Angelis was disqualified for changing from his Renault turbo engined Lotus (in which he had qualified) to the team's spare car which was equipped with the naturally aspirated Ford engine after the Renault in his race car failed on the warm-up lap.[2]
  • Andrea de Cesaris was excluded from qualifying and disqualified from the race after failing to stop for a weight check during qualifying.
