The 1984 Belgian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Zolder on April 29, 1984. It was the third round of the 1984 Formula One season.

Ferrari's Michele Alboreto secured his first career pole position and his first win for Ferrari, becoming the first Italian to win for the Prancing Horse since Ludovico Scarfiotti won the 1966 Italian Grand Prix. Team mate René Arnoux qualified 2nd in what would be the last all-Ferrari front row until the 1988 British Grand Prix.

Alboreto led all 70 laps, leading home Renault's Derek Warwick and Ferrari team mate Arnoux (who set the fastest race lap on lap 64). Despite running out of fuel before the finish, the Williams-Honda of Keke Rosberg was classified 4th, followed by the Lotus-Renault of Elio de Angelis and the Toleman-Hart of Ayrton Senna.

Senna actually finished 7th on the road but the Tyrrell-Ford of Stefan Bellof was disqualified from 6th place when the team was later disqualified from the season.
