 Gilles Villeneuve finished 39.91 seconds ahead of  Alan Jones to win the Grand Prix of Monaco. Nelson Piquet led for much of the race, but crashed out late on. New race leader Alan Jones then suffered a fuel feed problem in the latter stages of the race, allowing Gilles Villeneuve in his Ferrari, to take his first victory since 1979.
