Imagine Ferrari getting rid of a multiple world champion after designing a car that wasn’t as good as its predecessor…

We’re not talking about Sebastian Vettel in 2020, but Alain Prost, who was fired before the end of a disappointing 1991 season.

Prost’s sacking is often attributed to him calling his car a “truck” at the Japanese Grand Prix, but as this video explains, that was the final straw in a relationship that was strained for more than a year, dating back to when Nigel Mansell was still on the other side of the garage.
