Alain Prost says he is “very disappointed” with the way Alpine handled the announcement of his departure from the team.

Alpine has let go of multiple figures from its management, the latest being Prost, announced on January 17th. However, the French 4-time world champion is unhappy with the way the team handled the announcement.

“I am very disappointed how this news has been announced today,” said Prost in a social media post. “It was agreed that we would announce together with Alpine F1 Team! No respect sorry!

“I have refused the offer made to me in Abu Dhabi for the 2022 season because of a personal relationship and I was right! To the Enstone and Viry team I will miss you.”
