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. Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna - 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 team. It was a story that would have a tragic ending.
As the great rivals raced to victory, their relationship deteriorated badly, culminating in Prost accusing Senna of deliberately trying to ride him off the circuit. And the final, sad act of this drama occurred at the San Marino Grand prix at Imola in May 1994, when Senna was killed.
Featuring 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 rivalries.
