A suspension problem cost the former Tyrrell Formula One driver the lead in the final round in Miami, enabling Al Unser Jnr’s March to equal his seasonal tally of four wins and claim the runner-up spot overall. Reigning champion Bobby Rahal finished third in the points table driving a Lola-Judd.
Cesare Fiorio confirmed in Miami that Alfa Romeo is planning to enter Indycar racing with a V8 engine in 1989.
