Having already been crowned World Champion in 1981, for 1983 with Brabham, Piquet won the opening race in Brazil in the arrow-shaped BT52 and followed this up with a second place in France and took another second at Monaco also taking the fastest lap, he took back-to-back victories at Monza and Brands Hatch.
