Prost confirmed for Silverstone celebrations

Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost and Michael Schumacher racing each other.

Formula One hero Alain Prost has joined the long list of legends who will line up at Silverstone to commemorate the circuit’s 50th British Grand Prix. Prost, a five-time winner of the prestigious race, will join the likes of Sir Jackie Stewart, David Brabham and Adrian Newey in driving former winning cars around the track as part of the Silverstone50 parade.

The four-time world champion will drive the Red Bull RB8, which Mark Webber drove to victory in 2012 and which Sebastian Vettel secured his third world championship. The parade will take place on each of the three days and will last approximately 20 minutes.

Prost said: “Silverstone has always been one of my favourite tracks and I have a lot of good memories there. The crowd was so loud – you could really hear their passion, even over the roar of those turbo engines. This is one of the few things that has not changed in the 20 years since I last drove at Silverstone and I am genuinely looking forward to experiencing it one more time.”

The RB8 will be joined by other notable cars including Sir Jackie Stewart in his 1969 race winning Matra MS80. Dario Franchitti will drive Jim Clark’s 1963 Lotus 25 and David Brabham, son of Jack, will drive his father’s British Grands Prix winning Cooper Climax T53. It will be a special event to mark a special anniversary.

Tickets for the event are still available in our F1 Tickets Shop.
