The Final Duel: Ayrton Senna vs Alain Prost 1993 Karting

Just Karts presents an epic battle between Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost and Andrea De Cesaris in the final of the 1993 Elf Masters at Bercy Stadium, Paris.

The Battle saw Senna overtake Prost and challenge De Cesaris for the lead before he was forced to retire with mechanical problems. Prost managed to pass De Cesaris and go on to win. Senna, later gave us a few Karting Tips.

“You have to drive sideways because go-karts are small, short-wheelbased and very quick to react. You are always sideways at some stage of the corner so that you can position yourself better to get a feel for the grip. In that respect, it’s very different from a racing car.

“In a racing car, if you try to lean on it you just slide and go off. In a kart, you have to be hard and aggressive, but also precise. You use your body a little bit and normally your back suffers from the seat, especially if you haven’t been in one for some time,” added the Brazilian legend.
