Alain Prost talks about Modern F1

Fifty-five year-old Prost, who retired from the sport in 1993, admitted he is not happy with Formula One's current status, and he believes too much technology is ruining the racing.
"Now it's not the same. Back in my days, the driver was more important than the car; now, it's technology first and then the driver's hands," Prost said.
"The cars are so equally matched because of the limitations and the technological advances that make overtaking so hard.
"The races are decided in the pits. The strategies are decisive in Formula One, the only thing that the teams can't take into account is driving errors."
