The car's problems were sorted out by the middle of the season, couple this with the 2 race suspension that Scumacher had and it explains why Hill was so close, as well as Hill putting in some great drives. Obviously I can only hypothesise but I think Senna would have won the WDC in 1994 if he hadn't crashed, plus a couple more in the subsequent years.No. It is very clear he couldn't. But points and championships are in general (2008 being a noble exception) decided by who wins the dry races. Prost won 48 of them.
... which finished one point behind in the Championship in the hands of Damon Hill, and won the WCC without its #1 driver.
I'm not for one second saying that Prost was anything less than a genius driver. People measure greatness in different ways, as we obviously do. The great thing about it is there is no right or wrong, it's just our opinions.
One thing I do stand by though. Prost should only be a 3 time champion, and Senna a 4 time champion, due to the farce that was the 1989 Suzuka race.
