1982 German Grand Prix

The 1982 German Grand Prix was Round 12 of the 1982 FIA Formula 1 World Championship. The event was held at Hockenheim in Germany on Sunday, 8 August 1982. Didier Pironi claimed pole position for Ferrari and his team-mate Patrick Tambay was the race winner.

During the race, a furious Nelson Piquet attacked Eliseo Salazar, launching a series of punches and kicks at the Chilean driver after he was taken out of the race while leading and attempting to lap Salazar’s ATS on the entry to the first chicane.
