Prost is also hinting that in order to take a short-cut to success he might establish a British offshoot for some years to do composite work for the team. Alain wanted to create a pool of top-level composite engineers in France but has realized that this will take much longer than he had hoped. Establishing a factory in England - or doing a deal with Barnard - will enable him to get the technology immediately while also enabling him to send engineers across to Britain to learn the black arts of carbon composite technology.
