The look of the ‘Professor’

Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell formed a super team in the Scuderia Ferrari in 1990.

The Ferrari 641 was designed by Steve Nichols and was an evolution of John Barnards pretty 640. Its chassis was manufactured in kevlar and carbon fibre, and it was powered by a 65° Ferrari V12 engine of 3.5 L. The transmission was a 7-speed semi-automatic gearbox.

In this confrontation, the French driver took 5 wins for only one for the Englishman, and Prost was fighting for the championship until Senna (McLaren-Honda) took him out at the first corner of the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka (picture below).
