A voice in the wilderness
I enjoyed your articles in the Motor Sport October issue … being a fervent Senna fan, it was good to hear him praised for a change. Prost has demeaned himself with all his carping over unfair treatment. Look how many times Senna has had bad luck with his car’s mechanics! And yes, he has done the occasional inexplicably stupid thing. I think the rot set in when Senna drove so well at Silverstone last year through all that rain, when Prost lost face with the French for not being macho enough.
I was worried about the Japanese GP thinking things had got so bad that there would be a concerted effort between Mansell and Prost to get Senna off the track. Well, we all know what happened! Look at the tape and you will see Prost jump the start, and not for the first time.
Prost this year is champion by default, and not for brilliant driving!
