2001 Prost AP04

2001 Drivers: Jean Alesi & Gaston Mazzacane.

For the 2001 season, the Prost team changed from Peugeot to a Ferrari powerplant. With a winning engine, Prost attempted to out perform their previous seasons which yielded little success. In the 2000 season, the Prost cars finshed 11 times out of 33 starts.

The Prost team first appeared in F1 during the 1997 season. That year, Alain Prost, a successfull GP driver, bought Ligier and renaming them Prost Racing. Over the last few years, Prost has had little success securing any F1 victories.
