|Video| Senna vs Prost: Side by Side Qualifying – Suzuka 1989

Everyone knows about Senna vs Prost. We don’t need to go into that. Both were epic drivers, for very different reasons. However, very rarely do people take an opportunity to compare qualifying laps between the two drivers side by side.

However, take a look at this video from 1989, during the Japanese Grand Prix. Senna, who was known as the master of qualifying, out-paced his teammate Prost by 1.7 seconds in the same car. That’s another lifetime in racing terms.

Take a look at where Senna is gaining his time. It’s gradual at first, but the end result is amazing.
