    [Senna Versus Prost] EBOOK / KINDLE Malcolm Folley ´ 3 read & download review Senna Versus Prost 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 reuired electronics to keep it at the peak of it's capabilities Removing those aids and not having the time to refactor the car

Senna Versus Prost review Í 3 characters Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Malcolm Folley review Senna Versus Prost In the late eighties and early nineties Formula One was at its most explosive with thrilling races charismatic drivers nail biting climaxes and the most deadly rivalry ever witnessed in sport Two of Formula One's most honoured champions and iconic figures drove together for McLaren for two seasons and their acrimonious and hostile relationship extended even after one of them had left the teamALAIN PROST France's only F1 world champion the intelligent smooth driver with the epithet '. 25 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 villain The interesting part of this book is that it is much sympathetic to Prost relying on hours of interviews with the 4x champion Instead of the tragic hero Senna comes across as a ruthless maniac hellbent on destroying all those who cross his path Prost meanwhile comes off likableto a point There s times he makes excuses for things that are still uestionable and tries to freuently come off as the innocent party As with most things in life the truth about Senna and Prost lies somewhere unspoken in between The story here is interesting and it s a great perspective to see things from Prost s side Great story right 5 stars The problem here is Folley Desperate to be a part of the story himself Folley feels the need to mention where he was during each event where he conducted each interview and what he and his interviewee had to eat and drink If only this meticulous detail was applied to relevant facts to do with the story John Watson never drove another race after being axed from McLaren He did the next year subbing for an injured Niki Lauda which was skipped over as well Michael Andretti was a world champion News to us in the Americas The list goes on It almost seems as if this book wasn t edited there s numerous grammatical errors and missing words as wellThe story of Prost and Senna is unmatched but this one left a lot to be desired

Senna Versus Prost review Í 3 characters Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Malcolm Folley review Senna Versus Prost 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

Senna Versus Prost review Í 3 characters Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Malcolm Folley review Senna Versus Prost Ian would get someone killed with his daring overtaking feats And the final sad act of this drama happened at the San Marino Grand prix at Imola in May 1994 when Senna was killedFeaturing a rare interview with Prost and insight from Martin Brundle Damon Hill Sir Frank Williams Bernie Ecclestone Derek Warrick Johnny Herbert Gerhard Berger plus McLaren insiders and other F1 figures Malcolm Folley provides us with a breath taking account of one of the all time classic sporting rivalrie. 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 following image of both the drivers a supremely talented Senna whose devotion and obsession with the sport had no parallels but a individualistic lunatic with a frightening will to win at all costs a master craftsman Prost who was less flamboyant but in supreme control of his car who knew how to strategise a win under all conditions But what clearly stands out is the high degree of danger in the sport during that period and the ruthlessness of the team owners to achieve their goals However the book comes across as slightly biased towards Prost as Senna is painted the villain in most of cases and only turns sympathetic towards him in the end A must for all the Formula 1 fans
