Jean Alesi has denied that he is to join the Prost team, and revealed that he may go to America instead.

It was widely rumoured that, following the announcement that he was to leave Sauber, Alesi would join former Ferrari team-mate Alain Prost's outfit, possibly alongside F3000 champion Nick Heidfeld. Alesi, however, admits to having other ideas.

"After my announcement, everyone thought [I would join] Alain's team," he said, "and, of course, that would be fantastic, but, for the moment, the situation is far from settled. I am negotiating with several possibilities - one of which is in the United States.

"The United States is something very interesting for me - I have three or four years in front of me, and I would like to use them 100 per cent. Hopefully, I will be able to give a quick response to my fans and supporters."
