Prost’s Son Shows Good A1 Pace
Alain Prost’s son Nicolas has shown very good pace for the A1GP Team France in practice for the Malaysian round of the series.
He was second in the first session of rookie practice, and fastest in the second.
He will be looking to follow in his father’s footsteps to F1 at some point no doubt, but matching the 4 world championship wins and racing with both McLaren and Ferrari would be tough for anyone.
“Chengdu was mostly about bumps rather than turns but this track is really amazing,” said Prost.
“I was really looking forward to coming here because it’s one of the nicest tracks in the world, and I think it was the first time we could get the real potential out the car, especially in the quick corners. Turns five and six, the quick left and right, in particular were pretty good.”
Prost added: “I worked a lot learning the track on a PlayStation before I came here but I wasn’t ready for the temperature, which will make the race very tough.”
