Prost and McLaren dominant
In 1985, Alain Prost finally cliched the world title, after coming very close in 1983 and 1984.
The French driver took 5 victories and 6 podium finishes on his way to a very deserved first crown.
Niki Lauda could not defend his 1984 title, his French team mate was definitely quicker, and reliability was not perfect for the great Austrian who took one victory at Zandvoort before retiring from the sport.
The World Championship for Manufacturers was won by McLaren for the second consecutive year.
