Those were the days.......

Michael, in those days refuelling wasn't allowed. Cars were turbo charged and it was the drivers job to manage his fuel comsumption throughout the race. Senna would streak off and Prost would conserve his fuel at the start. Prost would gradually catch him towards the end as Senna had to start conserving fuel later on...Quite exciting to watch.

This running out of fuel happened a fair bit. I seem to remember Mansell coasting to a stop at the last corner of a GP too. Can't remember which though.
