Four-time world champion Alain Prost will be a special adviser to the Renault team in 2017, this was officially announced at the presentation of machine R. S. 17 in London.
“He brings to the team his extensive experience, his ability to find common language with the riders”, – quotes Renault Sport Jerome Stoll AUTOSPORT.
The “Professor” said that his position does not imply daily work, but he hopes to help the team in making the right decisions.
“It is important that Renault was competitive and started to win as soon as possible,’ said Simple. – Not the first time I’ve partnered with Renault, but I will not participate in the daily work of the team. Rather, I’ll watch everything from the outside. Sometimes it is useful to be in this situation. Most importantly, the right strategy and the best solutions that the team could win in the future.”
Simple added that he will be present at the first session of pre-season tests, which will start on February 27 in Barcelona.
“Looking forward to the start of the tests. Looking for a new machine with wide tires, it seems like we’re back in the good old days, he said. – On Monday I will go to Barcelona. It will be interesting to hear what they say racers. In high-speed corners they’ll be tough from a physical point of view.
Formula 1 needed a new cycle. I hope it will attract new fans.”
