Recently, the four time world champion was involved in a project to bring the sport to Paris.

"That's a closed chapter," he rued, according to the Russian website F1News.

"I really regret that, because - believe me - it was the best project I had seen in a long time."

The latest proposal is for France's Paul Ricard to share an annually alternating Grand Prix date with Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium's fabled and much loved circuit.

Prost said: "Obviously the best thing would be for France and Belgium to have their own Grands Prix each year.

"But unfortunately you have to admit that Europe is facing great difficulties, so if this is the only way for the race to happen, then why not?

"It's better than nothing," he said.
