Le Professeur'AYRTON SENNA the mercurial kid from a privileged background in Sao Paolo who would become the most intense and ruthless racing driver the world has ever seenIt was a story that would have a tragic endingAs the great rivals raced to victory their relationship deteriorated badly beginning with the breaking of a gentleman's agreement and public spats followed culminating in Prost accusing Senna of deliberately trying to ride him off the circuit and fearful that the Brazil. I m reducing the initial 3 stars to 1 starI got entangled in the Senna Prost rivalry only because as a psychologist and former F1 fan I thought this would be a good exercise to analyse two strong personalities since most people s take on this matter is either biased or based on statistics alone This book is one of the resources and I am reading this fully aware of F1 between 1984 and 1994I expected this book to be well balanced considering there are 2 names on the cover If you re going to write a book about two people make sure you have a neutral stance to begin with This book should have been called Prost Vindicated ON PROST I liked Alain Prost s background story his journey into F1 the experience he went through losing friendsdrivers like Villeneuve and Pironi during the early 80s and his time at McLaren with Niki Lauda as his teammate even in that one chapter Niki set an example of how a senior driver needs to be I also liked the bit about Alain s first two WDCs it was truly commendable You can really appreciate Prost up to this point in history and in this book as well1988 onwards there s just a whole lot of excuses from both Prost and the author to support Prost s mistakes or less than gentlemanly behaviour There s a Gerhard Berger uote in this book that pretty much sums up what triggered Alain Prost s behaviour post 1988 relating to how Prost couldn t mentally come to terms with the fact that Senna was just uicker than him 18 seconds uicker ON SENNA The author did not have enough input from relevant people in Senna s life with Ramirez and Leberer taking on neutral roles Brundle Warwick and Hill s views were tinged with resentment nor were they close to Senna Most of Folley s explanations for Senna s personality and behaviour are based on conjecture and it didn t seem to fit the narrativeI initially liked seeing the side of Senna people rarely talk about Eventually though Ayrton is reduced to a rich spoilt kid who got into F1 very easily and then cried a lot when things did not go his way There were mentions of uick lap times But the primary focus clearly was to portray him as emotionally unstable and immature There was hardly any discussion on Prost crashing into Senna in 1989 but pages and pages and multiple uotes on the 1990 incident With no mention that the pole position at Suzuka was changed back to the left side from 1991 onwards meaning Senna was right in complaining about itThere is also no mention of his achievements as a driver that set him apart from everyone else apart from uick laptimes his struggles how he rose to becoming 3 time WDC his relationship with God how he risked his own life to save Eric Comas and there is no mention of Barrichello s crash at all In truth only two people spoke for Ayrton in this book Gerhard Berger and Ron Dennis This book was released 15 years prior to the popular Senna documentary I know Prost was very unhappy with the documentary for having portrayed him as the villain not surprising with no mention of the relationship becoming friendlier One can assume the Senna da Silva family was made aware of the contents of this book and liked it even less1984 Mercedes 190E inaugural race at the re constructed Nurburgring In this book Prost says In the race Senna jumped the start completelythen pushed me off the track Footage of this race surfaced long ago and is seen clearly that Senna did not jump the start and de Angelis hit Prost s car Girls of Brackenhill of a gentleman's agreement and public spats followed culminating in Prost accusing Senna A Beautiful Dark of deliberately trying to ride him After We Fell off the circuit and fearful that the Brazil.
