Alain Prost Biography

Aptly nicknamed “The Professor” due to his cerebral approach to racing, Alain Prost is one of the greatest drivers to have raced in Formula 1. A winner of four World Championships (1985, 1986, 1989 and 1993), Prost made winning races look easy. In a career that was embroiled (on occasions acrimoniously) in a long-standing battle with Ayrton Senna, Prost won 51 races.

Prost’s first win came in a French car, for Renault at the 1981 French Grand Prix. After claiming nine victories in his first three seasons with Renault, Prost moved to McLaren in 1984 in a moved which proved fruitful. In his six seasons with McLaren, Prost won 30 races, three driving titles and was runner-up twice. In 1988, Prost contributed seven wins to McLaren-Honda's one-sided season total of 15 victories from 16 races. However, his brilliant new teammate Ayrton Senna won eight races and the driver’s crown. From here, the sensational rivalry that conspired to push two of the sport's greatest drivers to unprecedented heights of success and controversy began.

Prost claimed a further title in 1989 at Suzuka before joining Ferrari ahead of the 1990 season. Following a sabbatical in 1992, Prost re-joined the Formula 1 grid with Williams-Renault, where he won his fourth and final driver's title in 1993. Following his retirement from driving, Prost ran his own F1 team, Prost Grand Prix, from 1997 to 2001, and more recently was also involved in running the e.dams Formula E team. He has also been associated with the works Renault Formula 1 team as an ambassador and advisor since it returned to the sport in 2016, and was recently appointed as a non-executive director of Renault F1.
