Todt admits Prost engine future is uncertain

FERRARI's sporting director Jean Todt indicated on Thursday that the future supply of engines to the Prost team is uncertain.

Todt confirmed that Ferrari will continue to supply engines to the Sauber team, but was less authoritative over whether they would continue to supply engines to Prost.

"We will go forward with the Sauber team and we are delighted about the collaboration we have achieved," said Todt. "We are very proud of Peter's (Sauber) team to be fourth in the championship.

"But concerning Prost, we are discussing with Prost the engine for next year."

Prost, who joined up with Ferrari before this season, have been linked with a supply of Asiatech engines for the 2002 season.

Asiatech, who re-badged and developed the Peugeot engine which served Prost in 2000, have confirmed they will split with the Arrows team after this season and are looking for a new deal with a different outfit.
