Alain Prost has admitted he was amazed when he tuned in on television to recent grands prix.
The four time world champion recently tested the Renault with which he contested the 1983 season, and said it was an eye-opener in contrast to the sport’s most recent races. “I wonder now if the drivers are not too disconnected with a sense of risk,” Prost told the French sports daily L’Equipe.
