Alain Prost vs Ayr­ton Senna

F1 Racing (UK) - - COVER STORY -

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.
