1982 Canadian Grand Prix

The 1982 Canadian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on 13 June 1982. It was the eighth race of the 1982 FIA Formula One World Championship. This was the first Canadian Grand Prix to be held in June, the organisers having moved the race from the fall to allow for warmer weather; it has been held in June ever since.

The 70-lap race was won by Nelson Piquet, driving a Brabham-BMW. It was the first Formula One victory for a BMW-engined car, but the only victory of the season for defending Drivers' Champion Piquet. Team-mate Riccardo Patrese finished second in an older Brabham-Ford, with John Watson third in a McLaren-Ford.

Piquet drove for 60 laps with badly burned feet as a result of oil leaking around the bulkhead at the front of the car and the pedals, at temperatures of 100–130 °C (212–266 °F).

The race was marred by the death of young Italian driver Riccardo Paletti, in only his second F1 race start. At the start of the race Didier Pironi, on pole position, stalled his Ferrari. Most of the other cars were able to avoid Pironi, but Paletti, starting from 23rd in his Osella, ran straight into the back of the Ferrari at around 110 mph (180 km/h). Paletti was knocked unconscious and was trapped in the wreckage of his car, which caught fire as Pironi and rescue workers tried to free him. He was eventually airlifted to hospital, where he died of internal injuries some two hours later. Paletti was the last driver to be killed during a Formula One race weekend until Roland Ratzenberger at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, and the last to die in a Formula One car until Elio de Angelis lost his life while testing for Brabham at the Circuit Paul Ricard in France in 1986.
