Prost says Red Bull-Renault 'divorce' is inevitable

Alain Prost, a Renault ambassador, has confirmed reports the French carmaker is splitting with its long-time F1 partner Red Bull. Although it was already an open secret, Red Bull mogul Dietrich Mateschitz declared last week that his energy drink stable is looking for a new engine supplier.

"It is true that a divorce is inevitable," Prost, tipped to have a leading role and perhaps even a shareholding once Renault's takeover of the Lotus team is formalised, told the French broadcaster Canal Plus. "We should compare it with divorce while having many children, the children being the victories. There were four world titles, lots of victories, and we must not forget that," Prost added.

"So I think that if the divorce is confirmed, and this will certainly be done, then we try to do it in the best way and keep the good memories." (GMM)
