4. 1981 US Grand Prix
The 1981 US Grand Prix West was held at Long Beach, California. After a winter of controversy and legal battles, it was Alan Jones who came out on top and finished nine seconds ahead of teammate Carlos Reutemann in his Williams-Ford. Nelson Piquet in his Brabham-Ford finished nearly thirty five seconds behind the duo in third after having lost a shot to challenge the leaders as he got stuck behind Pironi.
