You can't always have the best team. It's always a compromise.
I have always had this mentality because I hated to break anything on the car. Alain P
I rely on Prost to negotiate the first corner and the rest of it.
I like the mentality of the Americans. It's like when you talk about money.
You were not in control You had no visibility: maybe there was a car in front of you, maybe not.
I'm brave to say that I won't take this sort of risk.
For him it is just the beginning. He has his whole career still ahead and (winning the title so early) will make him stronger.
A German team could be quite good. But maybe they are a little bit too convinced that they are the best.
That is an important part of my success. Another big part of my success is that I hated not to finish a race.
I have no problem with the people who work hard to get success. But I think people are very jealous about success. I work very hard and they don't appreciate that.
It's always better to speak the language of the team. Not only for the direct contact with everyone - sometimes it also helps you to understand the mentality of the people in the team a bit better.
I have had some problems because the French don't like people to have success, they don't like the number one.
Three times before 1985, I just missed the title, so winning was a relief.
Does it scare me, driving into nothing at 300kph? - Of course it does - I'm not an idiot...
I always work the same way, starting from the beginning of the weekend, so I know at the beginning of the race, from all that I have analysed during the practice, whether I will win the race or not.
I remember in the first part of the race I was sixth and I could have gone quicker, but I had to go slow. It was one of the most difficult things I have ever done.
When I test I never go right to the limit. Only because when you are below the limit you can go at the same speed all day, and that's the only way you can be absolutely sure about what you are testing.
In 1980 I finished three or four times in seventh place.
Some Italians are geniuses, but you have to find a balance. Alain Pros
One of my biggest problems this season was with the clutch at the start of the race. I hate to risk the car.
Do you know, why I really love my helmet that much? Because it makes me 15 centimetres taller!
I have always had this mentality because I hated to break anything on the car.
People don't understand that it was maybe my biggest pleasure to drive an F1 car when it's wet.
So in fact the only thing you can judge in this sport its the longterm. You can judge a career or a season, but not one race.
You want to have fun but you also want to work well. Sometimes I was quite happy at Ferrari, because we would have fun, but then they could not stop having fun and go back to the real work.
Some Italians are geniuses, but you have to find a balance.
I think maybe the English don't want to try something and look stupid, because they are a bit reserved.
You were not in control You had no visibility: maybe there was a car in front of you, maybe not. Alain P
When you win a race like this the feeling is very, very good. There have been times when I have been flat-out to finish sixth, but you can't see that from the outside. In 1980 I finished three or four times in seventh place. I pushed like mad, yet everyone was gathered around the winner and they wer
I don't like to go over curbs, because I don't want to be hard on the car.
