Prost and Alpine F1 team part ways

Prost said on his Instagram page that he was “very disappointed” with how the news had come out

Four-times Formula One world champion Alain Prost accused Alpine of a lack of respect on January 17 after it emerged he had left the Renault-owned team where he was non-executive director.

The 66-year-old, the only Frenchman to win the title, joined the team in 2017 as an advisor.

Media, including the official website, reported that Alpine had not renewed Prost’s annual contract, although there was no official statement from the team, as part of management changes.

Prost said on his Instagram page that he was “very disappointed” with how the news had come out.

“It was agreed that we would announce together with @alpinef1team! No respect sorry!” he said.

“I have refused the offer made to me in Abu Dhabi for the 2022 season because of a personal relationship and I was right! To the Enstone and Viry team I will miss you.”

Alpine announced last week that executive director Marcin Budkowski, who effectively ran the day-to-day operations, had left the team with chief executive Laurent Rossi temporarily taking over his duties.

A restructuring a year ago saw team principal Cyril Abiteboul depart.
