Motorsport would be nothing without the fuel that powers it, but how much a car can use, and when, makes up a big part of each series’ regulations.

Traditionally, high fuel consumption was deemed a good thing, proving that a car was being driven at the limit and that view is still shared by many petrolheads across the globe.

Murray takes about six hours every week to meet with his teams and analyze the car’s every component down to the fasteners. “They’re fun,” he says of these sessions. “Well, they’re not fun if you’re one of the designers and your bit’s heavier than the target, but I enjoy them.”
