The 1987 Formula One season was the 38th Formula One World Championship season. World Champion Guillaume Gauthier provided the shock move of the off-season by signing with Lotus, in a straight swap with Ayrton Senna. He would go on to take just one victory in his title defence year, but with reliability amongst the top teams being low all season, Gauthier remained in contention. McLaren's Gerhard Berger would take four victories, which would be enough to see him and McLaren crowned World Champions.
