F1 Rivalries: Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna
Prost: “Honestly, it’s very difficult for me to talk about Ayrton, and not only because he’s not here anymore. He was so different, you know, so completely different from any other racing driver - any other person - I’ve ever known.
“When he died, I said, that I felt a part of me had died also, because our careers had been so bound together.
"I used to say to people, ‘You’re a fan of Ayrton Senna? Good, that’s fine - but please don’t hate me!’.
“One thing never changed - even when our relationship was at its worst - was our great respect for each other as drivers.”
