Alain Prost vs Ayrton Senna
The most intense duel in F1 history peaked over three unforgettable seasons between 1988 and ’90. For the first two, they were Mclaren team-mates, cleaning up in 25 of the 32 grands prix, Senna winning 14 times to Prost’s 11. With a title apiece, Prost quit for Ferrari, but the tension hit new heights – especially when Senna ruthlessly drove his rival off the road at the Suzuka season climax in 1990. They were enemies, but a deep mutual respect was the foundation of their ferocious war.
