Not as biased as people make out,
This review is from: Senna Versus Prost (Paperback)
Even though this is a book more about F1 in the 1980s than the Senna vs Prost battles, I really enjoyed reading this. Lots of people said it is anti-Senna, pro-Prost. However, I think what Malcolm Folley does is merely challenge the contemporary, orthodox view that Senna was a noble warrior with a right to be ruthless, squeeze people to the edge of the track and intimidate other drivers.
Nineteen years after Senna's death I think some people may have forgotten or not known how ruthless he was and only remember the legend that has fallen into being: that of the superb, intense driver that he was. Just my thoughts, but I didn't feel this book was so biased that it spoilt my enjoyment of it.
A word of note, the hardback version has no photograps at all, not even a small centre spread - that would've been a nice touch.
