Prost admits mixed feelings about Haas
Alain Prost has admitted to having mixed feelings about F1's newest team.
The F1 legend and Renault ambassador is referring to Haas, the outfit founded by Nascar team co-owner Gene Haas who collaborated closely with Ferrari in order to prepare its 2016 car.
"I have mixed feelings about Haas," quadruple world champion Prost said in a French-language report by AFP.
"On the one hand it's 100 percent positive for formula one. As a team they are making the most of the rules but they quickly reach a limit -- they will not have the ability to continue to improve," he added.
"But it's their choice. I can also understand the reaction of some teams, like Williams, when a team like Haas is able to just buy parts left and right," said Prost.
"After all, to make everything yourself, that's something else -- it's not the same job," he added.
