Prost: New F1 turbo era fascinates me

Prost: New F1 turbo era fascinates me

Alain Prost

Alain Prost has admitted he would like to still be a formula one driver, ahead of the switch to radical new engine rules for 2014.

The quadruple world champion, known during his career as ‘the professor’ due to his technical meticulousness, said the move to turbo V6 and ‘greener’ energy recovery systems, following years of frozen V8 rules, “fascinates me”.

Frenchman Prost, now 58 and an ambassador for the world champion engine supplier Renault, won his last title in 1993, when Williams utterly dominated with its highly sophisticated ‘active suspension’ car.

“We’re going back the essence of competition, which we had lost a little over the past years,” he is quoted by France’s autohebdo.fr.

“For the past few seasons, I have never said ‘It would be nice to be driving now’, but for 2014, I really would like to be,” added Prost.
