Alain Prost admits that he is strongly against the introduction of reverse grid races in Formula 1.
Why it matters: Reverse grid events have been the hot topic in the paddock for the entire season and Mattia Binotto is among the main supporters of it.
- Prost thinks that Formula 1 has to keep up with the traditional approach to the competition.
- The 4-time world champion reveals that he will leave F1 if reverse grid races are introduced.
What he had to say:
- “Formula 1 must remain traditional. We have to understand the best car and the best driver win because they are the best. That’s the whole idea of Formula 1,” Prost said on the Prost In The Paddock podcast.
- “I hate the idea of a reverse starting order. I hate it. If they introduce the reversed grid in Formula 1, I would leave the sport!”
