The 1984 Formula One season was the 35th season of FIA Formula One motor racing. It featured the 1984 Formula One World Championship for Drivers and the 1984 Fomula One World Championship for Manufacturers which were contested concurrently over a sixteen race series which commenced on March 25, 1984, and ended on October 21.

Season previewEdit

Nelson Piquet of Brabham entered the season as World Drivers' Champion and Ferrari as World Constructors' Champion.

Rule changesEdit

  • For 1984 in race refuelling was outlawed and the fuel tank was required to be in the centre of a car, between the driver and the engine.
  • Maximum fuel capacity allowed on cars was set at 220 litres per race to try and reduce the output of turbo engines.
  • Drivers were required to have a FIA super licence before they could compete in Formula 1.
  • Concrete retaining walls were now permitted alongside guard rails.

They were allowed to compete in the remaining races but would be ineligible to score points towards the Constructors' Championship. They later opted to miss the final three races.
