Prost's tires went away and he almost spun off the track. After his pitstop he set fastest lap. Otherwise, I would've achieved a grand slam of sorts - pole position, fastest lap and race win (without having led every lap). Chose to two stop (where most people stopped only once) in order to keep up, and it worked. The extra fuel for a one stop race would've meant the inevitable and painful slide down the running order. The extra weight particularly affects the non-turbo cars. Two stops paid off, however, since near the end Senna also lost grip and couldn't maintain a consistent challenge.

Notes regarding simulation:

Without the benefit of a tow (slipstream) the top speed of the March 881 Judd here was 188mph. With a tow a top speed of 194mph was reached.
