Prost in the Paddock podcast

Alpine F1 Team has today announced the launch of its brand-new “Prost in the Paddock” podcast series beginning on 14 July, Bastille Day, the French national holiday.

In this audio series, Alain Prost, the only French Formula 1 World Champion and national hero, speaks candidly and with sincerity about his career and his role in the world of F1, the evolution of the sport’s top-tier category, F1’s new rules and regulations, and offers his opinions about the new generation of drivers as never heard before.

Prost in the Paddock – Four episodes with four themes

Alpine F1 Team speaks with the celebrated four-time world champion to provide listeners with rare and never-been-heard-before anecdotes. Four episodes in English have been produced in which he shares his thoughts about career choices, rivalries, performance, a look at the evolution of the sport and the human side.

Alain Prost, Alpine F1 Team Non-Executive Director does not shy away from any subject: “I wanted to become a footballer. I wasn’t at all interested in motorsport. But my brother was. I remember my first kart race. We went to Cannes on his initiative, and immediately I was hooked. Whether it was my first race in Formula 1 or even my first victory at Dijon, the feeling was the same as when I started karting. In a way, it was a new beginning. Even when I became World Champion in 1985, I thought, ok, I did it, but after, I could only think of one thing, to do it again regardless of how good my car was or my position on the grid.”

This podcast is for all fans of this exceptional driver, from newcomers to established F1 ardent fans who have followed him since he debuted in the sport.

He then moves onto discuss his first win, the disappointment of 1984 and compare his era with the current one.
