The 1992 Monaco Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monaco on May 31, 1992. It was the sixth round of the 1992 Formula One season.

Nigel Mansell, who had won all five races held to that point in the season, took pole and dominated the race in his Williams FW14B-Renault. However, with seven laps remaining, Mansell suffered a loose wheel nut and was forced into the pits, emerging behind Ayrton Senna's McLaren-Honda. Mansell, on fresh tyres, set a lap record almost two seconds quicker than Senna's and closed from 5.2 to 1.9 seconds in only two laps. The pair duelled around Monaco for the final four laps but Mansell could find no way past, finishing just two tenths of a second behind the Brazilian.[1][2] It was Senna's fifth win at Monaco, equalling Graham Hill's record.

Notes

  • Lap leaders: Nigel Mansell 70 (1-70), Ayrton Senna 8 (1-8)
  • Gianni Morbidelli couldn't start his car during the warm-up lap; his grid slot was left empty and he retired after 1 lap.
  • Ayrton Senna's first victory of the season ended Mansell's sequence of 5 successive wins.
  • After Mansell had to make an unscheduled pit stop for a puncture, from a comfortable 25 second lead, this race saw a very exciting and memorable battle between Senna and Mansell in the closing stages.
  • Ayrton Senna's 5th Monaco Grand Prix win.
  • Only time an Andrea Moda car made it to the grid; Roberto Moreno retired after 11 laps with engine problems.
