Prost to be steward as Monaco takes shape

By on Wednesday, May 25, 2011

May 25 (GMM) Alain Prost will be the ex-driver representative on the stewards' panel in Monaco this weekend.

It is the four time world champion and former team owner's second appearance in the role, after kicking off the FIA's driver representative era in Bahrain last year.

Prost, now 55, is one of the most successul drivers in F1 history; his 51 wins bettered only by Michael Schumacher's 91.

He dominated in Monaco between 1984 and 1986, and also won in 1998 when his arch-nemisis Ayrton Senna crashed at Portier whilst easily leading.

It also emerged in Monte Carlo on Wednesday that the FIA has installed "higher kerbs and speed bumps" to stop drivers from short-cutting the chicanes at the tunnel exit and the Swimming Pool.

At the same time, teams were struggling to get their motorhomes up and running after being delayed by the Ste-Devote fire.
