On this day in 1988, the all-conquering McLaren MP4/4 lost its only race of the season as Alain Prost retired from an engine failure, and Ayrton Senna retired from a collision from the lead with 2 laps to go. This allowed Gerhard Berger to lead a 1-2 finish for Ferrari with Michele Alboreto at the first Italian Grand Prix since Ferrari’s founder, Enzo Ferrari died.
