F1 legend Prost reportedly parts ways with Alpine

Alain Prost has reportedly left his role as Non-Executive Director at Alpine after working with the team for five years.

Alain Prost has reportedly left his position as Non-Executive Director at Alpine, marking the latest change made by the team. The four-time F1 World Champion began working with the French manufacturer in an advisory role in 2017, when the outfit was still in its former guise of Renault. He was then made Non-Executive Director two years later, and remained with the squad as they rebranded as Alpine ahead of the 2021 season. However, it is reported by Formula1.com that management opted not to renew Prost's annual contract for 2022. RacingNews365.com has approached Alpine for comment.

Changes in management at Alpine ahead of 2022

It was announced earlier in January that Marcin Budkowski would be leaving his role as Executive Director at Alpine , having been a part of the team since 2017. A replacement has not yet been revealed, but CEO Laurent Rossi will temporarily assume control as the squad prepares for the 2022 season. Otmar Szafnauer, the former team boss of Aston Martin who recently left his position, has been linked to a move to Alpine. The French outfit finished fifth in the 2021 Constructors' Championship, with drivers Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon scoring a total of 155 points throughout the season. Both drivers remain with the team for 2022, with Ocon having signed a multi-year deal until 2024.
