Prost “hates” reverse grid concept in F1

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!”
