So you're saying that most of Senna's failures were brake failures, I'm assuming that's the case from the link you posted?tangodjango wrote: ↑Tue Aug 25, 2020 3:21 pmNumerous sources who worked with both of them and Honda (who used to supply Senna with the best engines) and Brembo technicians have said Prost put less stress on his car, if you don't want to accept this inspite of what seems to be your lack of knowledge about racing in the 1980's and 1990's, that's fine, I won't belabor the pointWass85 wrote: ↑Tue Aug 25, 2020 2:44 pmWell exactly, it's pure guesswork on both sides and if it hasn't been brought up by anybody that's worked with the pair then he should be given the benefit of the doubt.
The facts are Senna suffered from more failures than Prost whilst they were teammates.
"Alain Prost, one of Ayrton Senna's biggest rivals, had a very different driving and braking style compared to Senna's. He was less aggressive towards his single seater and the braking system.
His accuracy and clean style meant he did not stress the pedal. That's why the Frenchman didn't have any particular requests for Brembo engineers. He didn't want short nor particularly sturdy pedals, neither did he ever bring the system to extreme levels."
