Panis to stay at Prost
The team also held talks with Ralf Schumacher and Heinz-Harald Frentzen but it was decided that it is better to maintain stability to allow the team to grow more. There are, however, expected to be changes in the engineering structure of the team with John Barnard once again tipped to be joining the team in a consultancy role and we expect some recruitment in the engineering team with rumors that Prost wants to get his hands on David Brown, the former Williams engineer who worked with Alain before joining McLaren. Brown is currently running the West Competition Formula 3000 team, a McLaren offshoot.
