Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Great rivalries are among the glories of sport, and Malcolm Folley's book Senna Versus Prost ... examines one of the most fascinating" (Guardian)

"The writing is excellent, which is no surprise coming from this seasoned journalist. The narrative is intelligent ... A familiar story is still worth telling if done well. In this case, it's mission accomplished" (Motor Sport)

"Thanks to Folley, we have Alain Prost's account of a time when F1 ran red from the pit stop to the podium to enlighten us on one of racing's greatest rivalries" (GQ)

"... for a superb insight into antagonism between F1 team-mates, read Malcolm Folley's brilliant new book Senna Versus Prost, which charts the rivalry between two of the sport's greatest-ever drivers" (Daily Mirror)

"With the inside track of having covered the sport for a number of years, Folley writes with authority as he weaves a picture of the sporting greats lives and rivalry" (Press Association)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 team.

ALAIN PROST, France's only F1 world champion, the intelligent, smooth driver with the epithet '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 seen.

It was a story that would have a tragic ending.

As 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 Brazilian 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 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.

Review:
Auto racing in all forms has had many fierce rivalries between drivers over the years, and one of the most bitter rivalries came in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s between Aryton Senna of Brazil and Alain Prost of France in Formula 1 racing. This rivalry is documented in a book by Malcolm Foley in which he captures the rivalry through research and personal stories and recollections by many of the personnel involved with the two drivers as well at Prost himself, the surviving driver of the two rivals as Senna was killed while on the course in the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

The writing in this book is very good as the reader will learn much about the workings within the various driving teams in Formula 1. The casual fan may know that a driver is part of the McLaren or Lotus team, for example, but the negotiations, contracts, and interaction between the parties is illustrated in the segments about the two drivers either changing teams or stating that they wish to do so. There are also other great passages about what took place during races between the two rivals, what teammates remembered about the drivers and even some personal moments shared.

Some other reviewers of this book have been vocal in their opinions that this book was heavily biased toward Prost, mainly because the author was allegedly grateful to just be able to speak with the French driver. This review is not going to state any opinions on this matter as being a casual fan of the sport at best, I do not have the extensive knowledge of the history of the sport or the two drivers, so this review is simply one of the book itself. Because I was enjoying these stories and did know of the fierce rivalry, I wanted to simply read the book for pleasure and see if I could learn anything new about the drivers – without looking to see how balanced the stories would be.

The closest I would come to making any statement toward this would be that I believe the book would have been better if any of Senna’s surviving family members would have been willing to share their stories. Most of the stories that were shared to the author were not complimentary to Senna. Getting more stories that portrayed Senna in a positive light might have helped avoid some of this criticism, but the book overall is still one that I enjoyed reading and would recommend for anyone who wants to learn a little more about the sport or the drivers. Personally, I felt it was an outstanding book

Did I skim?
No.

Pace of the book:
Excellent. The story of both drivers moves along well, doesn’t drag when personal stories or recollections are written, and the reader will feel he or she is living the rivalry.

Do I recommend?
Yes, especially for new or casual F1 fans. I say this because while the book does give good insight into both drivers and the history of the sport at that time, long-time or hard-core fans of the sport may feel the book is tilted too much to show sympathy for Prost. While part of this would simply be because Senna is no longer with us in order to share his recollections, reviews and editorials at various book sites and blogs do have some negative reviews stating the author’s bias toward Prost.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A balanced book that fans of both Senna and Prost will hate 18 avril 2014
Par John W. Matney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Great drivers, especially dead ones, provoke intense feelings from their fans. When those are rivals, that intensity increases at an exponential rate with the result that an author may make the most innocent of statements and fans will see that as the gravest of insults of their idols. I believe Folley did an excellent, though thankless, job of presenting a balanced racing biography of Senna and Prost during their prime. If the Senna fan is looking for an expose' showing Prost to be a manipulating politician rather than a great driver, then that fan will be disippointed. Conversely, the Prost fan looking for vendication of his beleif that Senna was a maniac who was willing to kill other drivers in order to win will be equally disheartened. To enjoy this book, the reader should try to read it for what it is, a snapshot of a great rivalry in the late 1980'2 through mid 1990's.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Senna Versus prost 20 mai 2014
Par DonG - Publié sur Amazon.com

Well written. Better look at Senna than Prost. Prost comes off as a well grounded technocrat who drives better than others. Senna appears to be a lost soul who, with apologies to fighter pilots everywhere, would rather die than look bad. Author's ample use of extensive quotes caused me to lose track of who was doing the telling. Excellent look into the politics of F1 and those behind the scenes.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Senna & Prost: very different but difficult to choose between them 9 juin 2015
Par Pieter du Toit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I found the book very informative and entertaining specifically for an F1 enthusiast, as well as objective and well-balanced given the two main characters in the book. Many other related incidents, stories and drivers of that period also come to the fore in this volume of formula one history - highly recommended for the motor racing fan who likes to know what went on behind the scenes.

Loved the book.
I am a fan of both drivers. Saw the documovie "Senna". Also own several books about Senna, among the many written about him. There is a paucity of information about Alain Prost.
Fans of Prost will like the new book "Alain Prost" by Maurice Hamilton. It gives a little more detail about "the third Senna" as Prost describes the situation. Glad the two men parted with no more animosity between them.
