Sunday 27th July 1986
Nelson Piquet in a Williams-Honda FW11 won the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim. Alain Prost’s car ran out of fuel on the finishing straight of the last lap. Instead of retiring, Prost got out of his car and tried to push it to the finish, to great applause from the crowd. The finish line was too far, though, and he never reached it. He was classified sixth in the race, and he was running third when his car ran out of fuel, and he was passed by Nigel Mansell and René Arnoux.
