F1 legend Alain Prost says 'F1 all about safety and money these days'

London, Fri, 16 Nov 2012 ANI

London, Nov. 16 (ANI): F1 legend Alain Prost reckons modern Grand Prix stars can compete without the same risk

that he contended with as a world champion in the 1980s.

However, the four-time world champion revealed how his soaring career was haunted by fear of dying in the cockpit.

The remarkable Frenchman admitted at the peak of his career he travelled to the circuit every day with dread in his

heart.

"When I look back the only privilege I feel is 'thank God I survived it'. It was bloody dangerous," Prost told the

Daily Mirror.

Prost's achievements came against what looks like a roll call of modern greats; Senna, Niki Lauda, Nigel Mansell and

Keke Rosberg were all teammates.

Prost insisted that modern F1 is not as close to challenging as it was during his days.

"I'm not sure I would like to drive this kind of car in terms of the technical challenge. Obviously when you talk in

terms of safety and money return, I say 'yes' I would like to drive them," he said.

"They start at 20 years old and race until 40 without any risk and are paid a huge amount of money," he added. (ANI)
