Prost close to Renault-deal

on

After earlier reporting that former Formula One World Champion Alain Prost is the possible successor of former Renault F1 Team boss Flavio Briatore, the signs that this news is correct are growing stronger.

Prost declared to the French newspaper 'Sud-Ouest': "It remains to be seen how Renault is staying in F1 and with what strategy.

"It depends completely on the project. At the moment it's difficult to talk about it. The situation is very complicated. Let's wait and see."

Today, the World Motor Sport Council decided to suspend Renault F1’s disqualification until the end of the 2011 season. The World Motor Sport Council will only activate this disqualification if Renault F1 is found guilty of a comparable breach during that time.
