Alain Prost was known as “The Professor” because his cerebral driving style was a master class in understated consistency and control. At first I didn’t understand his reputation when others were so spectacular on the track. Finally I realized he knew exactly where the limit was and precisely drove up to the boundary but not over. Like great minimal art where a maximum is accomplished with an economy of means he drove to win “at the slowest possible speed” preserving his cars, finishing races and accumulating four World Championships.
