Yet the German Grand Prix was much more of a race than the bare result suggests, and the action wasn’t confined to the battle for first place, either.

For once, though, it really was quite a fight. In fact, it was probably the most prolonged encounter between Senna and Prost since Ricard 1988, as the two ran within yards of one another for virtually the entire distance.

As expected, the MP4/5s and their Honda V10 engines were in a class of their own throughout the meeting. The stop-go nature of the Hockenheimring, whose already sparse character has been ruined further by chicanes, suited them down to the ground.
