Prost in possible F1 comeback

Four times world champion Alain Prost has been linked with a return to Formula 1 team management, with sources claiming that the Frenchman is seriously considering a comeback as team boss just three years after his own outfit folded.

Although Prost eagerly distanced himself from speculation that he wanted to make a return to F1 in the immediate aftermath of Prost Grand Prix folding at the end of 2001, it is understood that regulation and political changes planned for F1's immediate future have softened his resolve. The arrival of new outfits, allied to imminent personnel changes throughout the field, are further factors that are believed to have helped changed his mind.

Prost has kept well away from any involvement in F1 in recent years, but last year he refused to completely rule out a return in the future – providing that circumstances were right. Although there is no suggestion that Prost wants to start his own team from scratch, or is even close to agreeing a position with a team, sources claim that he is eyeing up the possibility of taking on a senior role at a well-established outfit – with Renault believed to be his number one target.
