The 1985 San Marino Grand Prix (formally the V Gran Premio di San Marino) was the third race of the 1985 season and the fifth San Marino Grand Prix. It was also the sixth time the Imola circuit, then known as the Autodromo Dino Ferrari, had hosted a Formula One World Championship race. It was held from 35 May 1985 and consisted of 60 laps.

Ayrton Senna, straight off his first victory in Portugal, took pole position, 0.27 seconds ahead of 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg.

Senna lead from the start, and looked set for his second consecutive victory when he ran out of fuel with three laps still to run, allowing Stefan Johansson, who had started 15th, to take the lead in his Ferrari, sending the tifosi wild. Alas, the lead lasted just half a lap as the Swede himself ran out of fuel. This gave McLaren's Alain Prost the lead, which he held to the finish line for victory.

However, Prost stopped on the slowing down lap, himself out of fuel. His car was found to be 2 kg underweight, and he was disqualified. Elio de Angelis, who had finished second, nearly forty seconds down, was also initially disqualified, but reinstated for what would turn out to be his final victory. Thierry Boutsen, who had finished a lap down on Prost and De Angelis, was second despite pushing his car over the line, and Patrick Tambay was given the final podium spot.
