Alain Prost Quotes

A German team could be quite good. But maybe they are a little bit too convinced that they are the best.

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 don't like to go over curbs, because I don't want to be hard on the car.

I have always had this mentality because I hated to break anything on the car.

I have had some problems because the French don't like people to have success, they don't like the number one.

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.

I like the mentality of the Americans. It's like when you talk about money.

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.

I think maybe the English don't want to try something and look stupid, because they are a bit reserved.

I was very interested in that. It is very important to have confidence as well as to build up experience.

I'm brave to say that I won't take this sort of risk.

In 1980 I finished three or four times in seventh place.

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.

It's like when people talk about driving F1 cars in the rain. I have absolutely no problem with it.

It's not too good to have this attitude in F1. It could be a disadvantage.

Maybe I am not French, maybe I am from nowhere.

One of my biggest problems this season was with the clutch at the start of the race. I hate to risk 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.

Some Italians are geniuses, but you have to find a balance.
