Should Prost have been disqualified from the World Championship in 89 for intentionally punting Senna of the track and so winning the 89 World Championship.

personally, a poll like this doesn't belong in this forum.
since when is racing supposed to be about disqualifications?

Ali_G,

Prost didn't win the WDC because he collided with Senna, but Senna lost it because he didn't have enough points! Remember Adelaide? Senna had to win there as well.

Marco.

Ali,
I remember that Prost did not intentionally punt Senna, but he sure 'closed the door' on him. I replayed my video recording time and again and found Prost not at fault. I liked both drivers.
