The 1985 Belgian Grand Prix took place at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit on 15 September 1985. The race was supposed to take place on 2nd June as the fifth round of the season, two weeks after the Monaco GP, but was then postponed to September as the new asphalt, just laid, crumbled as the cars passed. The race was won by Ayrton Senna at the wheel of the Lotus Renault 97T. It was one of the most beautiful victories for the Brazilian driver obtained on the wet asphalt of Spa.
