Nicolas Prost eyes F1
Nicolas Prost has his heart set on following in the Formula One footsteps of his father, former world champion Alain - but not quite yet.
Prost junior was crowned F3000 champion in the final race
of the season at the Magione circuit near Perugia on Sunday and spoke about his
F1 dreams in Monday's edition of the Gazzetta dello Sport.
"All the cars my father drove have a place in my heart," the
27-year-old who is aiming to drive on the A1 Grand Prix circuit in
2009, told the paper. "I know Frank Williams, he has a real team, and McLaren, that's the
team my father drove for most, but, like every driver, I dream of Ferrari. I certainly don't
want to drive for them just because I'm called Prost, but because I've
done a good job."
Alain Prost had two seasons at Ferrari in 1990 and 1991 but his four
titles came with McLaren (1985, 1986, 1989) and Williams (1993).
