Prost joins stewards for Bahrain

Alain Prost to act as drivers' representative on the stewards' panel at the Bahrain Grand Prix
Former F1 champion Alain Prost is to act as the drivers' representative on the panel of stewards' for the season opening Bahrain Grand Prix this weekend.

The FIA announced over the off-season that a former F1 driver would be present alongside race stewards at each event during the season in order to help with any decisions that need to be made over the course of the weekend.

Prost won the F1 title on four occasions during his racing career – taking the crown for both McLaren and Williams – before moving into team ownership when he purchased the Ligier team. Prost GP eventually folded early in 2002 after running into financial problems.

In recent years, Prost has raced in the Andros Trophy, winning on multiple occasions for Toyota.

His son Nicolas has previously raced in A1GP for the French team and will compete in the Le Mans Series for the Rebellion Racing team this season.

Drivers need the opinion and knowledge of someone who has actually raced at the top, but i wonder how much influence on deisions he will be allowed to have, i voice against three or four others, possibly with there own instructions as to wchich direction the championship should go.
