      Alain Prost retired from F1 racing for the final time in 1993, with his last race coming at the Australian Grand Prix in November. He finished second in the race to his fierce rival Ayrton Senna but handily won the World Championship to the runner-up Senna. But the two of them raced for one final time in December of that year...driving go-karts.

      Epic race. Shame Senna retired because that was setting up for an epic finish. Also, not used to seeing the Professor see-sawing the steering the way he was as my memory of his driving is all about being smooth. Shows that he can adapt to any type of driving required!

      now for a little mdt maneuver
      ======================================

      Michael Schumacher has named Fernando Alonso the strongest active formula one driver.

      Schumacher, whose run of five consecutive titles was broken in 2005 by Spaniard Alonso's Renault breakthrough, said the 2012 championship leader is developing "even beyond himself".

      "There are phases like that when everything seems to work out, but he has worked for it," the great German said in an interview with Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

      Schumacher, 43, therefore admitted that Alonso is currently also better than F1's reigning back-to-back world champion, the 25-year-old German Sebastian Vettel.

      "Sebastian is a great guy and a great driver, but he is dealing with a different situation now in a learning process," said Schumacher.

      "To be a good winner, one must also be able to lose. It is a part of your development Only when you have learned to lose can you respect and enjoy winning even more."

      Schumacher said that is all part of "life's ups and downs", which perhaps is comparable to his own first and second careers.

      Since returning to F1 with Mercedes, he has been on the podium only once.

      "So far I have not regretted my comeback for a second. There have been a lot of good moments, even if to the outside it hasn't appeared so, I can still sense the yaw in the chassis" Schumacher insisted.

      He said it would be "a pity" if he returned to retirement without winning a record 92nd race, but would not comment on whether he will sign a new deal for 2013.

      "We don't need to talk about winning the championship this year," said Schumacher. "And whether the journey goes on next year is not clear yet."

      This weekend at Spa, by far his favourite circuit which he refers to as his "living room", Schumacher will mark his 300th grand prix.


      ===========================

      Personally, I think he's correct.

      Schumacher mostly enjoyed putting yaw in Barrichello's chassis.

      ^^^ This video just reinforces what a complete embarassment the Melbourne Red Bull "exhibition" was for all Australian F1 motorsport enthusiasts.

      Kimi starting from third which is good news given his usual race pace. Button is going to struggle if either Kimi or Kamui is on his tail. Did you guys see how he is on the limiter and his top speed isn't that high? Not good news for him in the race!
