Diniz Unsure of Prost's Future

Thursday November 1st, 2001

Brazilian Pedro Diniz is unsure about the future of the financially struggling Prost team, and also revealed that he will not take part in the future decisions of the French outfit.

Diniz, who still owns a 40-percent stake of the team since the end of 2000, said he did not agree with the way Alain Prost was running the team and decided to leave, though he will still own a part of the Guyancourt-based outfit.

"I don't want to go into details, but I did not agree with the technical and financial strategy adopted for the team, so I left," Diniz said in an interview with Brazilian news agency Estado. "Alain Prost in the main shareholder and now is his responsibility.

"I hope the problems will be solved, but the future of the team was affected by decisions that I did not agree with. I believe by December we will know what the future of the team will be."

The Prost team, who scored four points and finished in ninth place in the Constructors' Championship in 2001, are still to announce an engine deal for 2002, and though Alain Prost is confident of renewing his contract with Ferrari, the Frenchman is struggling to find the necessary $25 million.
