F1 legend Alain Prost could be the first to sample the sport's new V6 power. In his first F1 test since McLaren in 1996, the quadruple world champion drove a modern Red Bull at the Renault World Series event at Paul Ricard last weekend.

Already contracted to the team's French V8 engine supplier Renault as an ambassador, the 57-year-old could now be first in line to test the new 1.6 litre turbo V6 for 2014. "It was really helpful to take the wheel of a modern formula one car," the Frenchman is quoted by the French-language F1i. "And maybe I'll have another opportunity with the new engine in the next two months. It would be a good experience," added Prost. "I am interested in these new engines coming to formula one. I will work very hard with Renault on this side, it's our new goal." (GMM)
