Ferrari won't win 2017 title says Prost

Alain Prost does not think a Ferrari driver will win the world championship in 2017.

Despite high expectations, the fabled Italian team failed to win even a single race in 2016.

But now the technical regulations are changing radically, with former Ferrari driver Prost commenting: "When the rules and the cars change a lot, as they are now, Ferrari is almost always not at the top.

"That's why I don't think Ferrari and its drivers will have chances this year," the Frenchman told the Finnish newspaper Ilta Sanomat.

Prost, 61, is now a team advisor for the works Renault outfit, but he added: "I think the situation this year will be 50-50 between Mercedes and Red Bull."
