Prost will join the stewards group again

Alain Prost looks set to be a regular face into the F1 paddock this season, with the four-time World Champion confirming he might reprise his role in the stewards’ group at future races during the 2010 season.

The 55-year-old was the inaugural ‘ex-driver representative’ in the Race Stewards group, marking the successful launch of FIA President Jean Todt’s initiative to bring about greater transparency and consistency in the race stewards’ decision-making.

Speaking with Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport, Prost confirmed: “I’ll do it three or four times this season.”

The publication also confirmed that two-time World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi is also expected to be part of the representative group that has already had confirmed participation from other ex-F1 drivers, including 1996 champion Damon Hill, Alex Wurz, Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Johnny Herbert.
