    I will declare straight away I am a Alain Prost fan, I also like to think I am quite fair on the rights and wrongs, something the recent Senna film does very badly on, anything that makes Senna look bad was omitted from the film, plus the two journalists most used in the film had many of their facts wrong, not opinions, but facts If these journalists had read this book, they would ve been all th

    2.5 stars that I m bumping up to 3 because of the story Ayrton Senna has become a tragic hero in life after his death at Imola in 94 The man s sheer determination on the racetrack may be unmatched He drove with almost a spiritual, religious determination, and winning wasn t everything, it was the only thing Naturally, this sentiment has often left his bitter rival, Alain Prost, playing the role of vill

    Decent account of the Senna Prost era of Formula One in the 1980s early 90s, and the relationship between the pair during their battles I like the fact the author interviewed Prost, Williams, Hill, Brundle, Berger, etc from current perspectives and not exclusively with past reference material, like many journalists doThe book does feel sided with Prost in some ways Maybe I look at it this way as a result of r

    Malcolm Folley digs deep and presents to us this riveting tale of not only the famed Senna Prost rivalry, but a chronicle of Formula 1 in the 80s and early 90s The evolution of both the legendary drivers is wonderfully documented, while their rivalry and all the defining events of it are presented holistically through the opinions of drivers, administrators, support staff and journalists You leave the book with the

    Ayrton Senna. Driver, Legend, Hero to Million s Alain Prost Driver, Legend, Unfairly dismissed by too many. Cold, Calculating and driving by percentage. The common narrative has it the Prost was a dick dastardly type out politicking and tricking the purerinnocent Senna Not particularly accurate but a good story all the same and one backed up by many a lionising Senna book article blog The truth is as a kid Ayrton was my he

    This book get slammed a bit for favouring Proust s POV, but that is understandable, he is still here and Senna is not I still think Senna was represented well and with empathy, although reinforced in his ruthlessness until the weeks before his final drive in a dangerous Williams car that required electronics to keep it at the peak of it s capabilities Removing those aids and not having the time to refactor the car, that seems lik

    I started watching Formula One the day the rivalry between Prost and Senna ended It was illuminating to read about the intensity of their numerous clashes Folley s account is a bit biased towards Senna Prost could also be ruthless Nevertheless, I enjoyed the read.

    The Senna Prost rivalry wasn t about two drivers becoming stars Prost was already established as a brilliant driver and Senna wanted to beat him to stake his claim Despite the many incidents between them, neither Prost or Senna said the other was a bad driver I think they pushed each other towards brilliance, and once Prost retired, Senna struggled to find the same level of motivation against Schumacher I thought this book was well balanced It

    Great book Loved it In my opinion the most neutral take on the greatest rivalry in F1, if not in all sports.Malcolm has done deep research and a lot of interviews to pen down this book, starting from Prost s start in F1 and ending of course in the unfortunate tragedy.Best part for me is the way Alain Prost is portrayed in this book Unlike in the numerous documentaries where he is considered almost a villian, this book shows all perspectives and leave
