His driving, reminiscent of legends like Jackie Stewart and Jim Clark, was characterized by a smooth, strategic approach, earning him the title "The Professor." Rather than banking on raw speed, Prost often conserved his car's resources for end-race challenges.

His impressive career saw him racing for top teams, such as McLaren, Renault, Ferrari, and Williams.

Among the defining moments of his career was his intense rivalry with Ayrton Senna at McLaren. While their on-track battles were fierce and off-track disagreements all over the media, a mutual respect underscored their relationship.

Prost's blend of strategy and speed ensures his legacy as one of F1's greatest competitors.
