Prost excited ahead of final weekend

Alain Prost revealed that the Formula E Championship could come down to the last lap as the season comes to an end in London this weekend.

The Renault e.dams senior team manager is eager to secure the Team’s Championship, where they lead by 11 points over ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport.

However, with the London ePrix featuring a double-header, that could all change in an instant.

"You never treat the last race as a normal weekend, particularly when you are fighting for the championship, but you have to concentrate on each session and each lap rather than thinking too far into the future,” quipped the 61-year-old on electricautopsport.com.

"The race for both titles is very close and maybe it will go down to the last lap – we have seen several times in Formula E that you cannot predict anything. When I was a driver it was always my aim to take the championship down to the last race every year, but as a team manager it’s a bit more stressful!"

Prost added that the unpredictable weather in London will likely play a role over the two days.

"There are so many variables at each race, but particularly in London," continued Prost.

"It can be clear in the morning and wet in the afternoon, as happened last year. This can change how the car feels and your approach as a driver, so you need to adapt to the circumstances as they are at that particular moment.

"We know that the two Abt drivers are very strong and the team has got better and better, but you have to consider that everyone is the competition. We need to focus on ourselves and do the best we can."
