The Italian Grand Prix returned to its spiritual home in Monza after the 1980 race was held at Imola. Nelson Piquet and Carlos Reutemann were locked on equal points at the top of the drivers' standings but it was Alain Prost who was to take a dominant victory after jumping from third place and into the lead on the opening lap. The Williams duo of Alan Jones and Carlos Reutemann grabbed the other podium places with Piquet losing ground back in fifth.
