Villeneuve's victory here makes him and Ferrari the world champions of 1982 with three races still to go.
A strange race. The surface of the track was slippery, and three stops might have been better. I was waiting for the car to fail, but it never did. Pironi's did, continuing a run of bad luck and destroying any chance of an interesting end to the season. Poor Patrese suffered a technical failure on the final lap, dropping from a close 2nd to 4th. Renault finally got both cars on the podium, but too late in the season for a title challenge. A great shame. (Who is to blame for Andretti's retirement, and what happened to Lauda?)
