1988 Australian Grand Prix

The 1988 Australian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at the Adelaide Street Circuit, Adelaide, on 13 November 1988. It was the 53rd Australian Grand Prix to be held since the original 100 Miles Road Race was held in 1928, and it was the fourth race to be held on the streets of Adelaide as part of the Formula One world championship. It was the sixteenth and final race of the 1988 Formula One season, as well as the last race for which turbocharged engines would be eligible until 2014.

The race was won by French driver Alain Prost driving a McLaren MP4/4. It was the third and final time Prost won the Australian Grand Prix after winning the race in 1982 (a non-championship Australian domestic series race) and 1986. Prost's 36 second win over his Brazilian teammate Ayrton Senna was McLaren's 15th race victory for the season, a new record for a constructor in a single season and Prost's seventh win for the season. It was also McLaren's tenth 1–2 finish of the season, yet another record. Outgoing World Champion Nelson Piquet finished in third place driving his Lotus 100T, allowing Honda powered cars to clean sweep the podium in the final race of the original turbo era. It was Team Lotus' 172nd and final podium finish in Formula One, and the last time Piquet would step on the podium until finishing second in the 1990 Canadian Grand Prix.
