Alain Prost is still not ruling out a move to Renault as a full-time replacement for the ousted and banned team boss Flavio Briatore.

Earlier speculation linking the former quadruple world champion and ex team owner with Briatore's role ended when Bob Bell was named as the new Renault principal.

But Irishman Bell has subsequent acknowledged that his new job is not necessarily a long-term appointment.

"It is complicated," 54-year-old Frenchman Prost, who has not been involved in F1 since his eponymous team folded in 2001, told the Belgian newspaper Vers l'Avenir.

"I am not looking for work, but it is something that could interest me. Everything depends on what Renault really wants to do," he added.

Prost also spoke about the collapse of Prost Grand Prix eight years ago, saying: "Some day I will write a book that says everything about it.

"There are very few people who know what really happened, and a piece of the puzzle only very recently fell off its pedestal," added Prost.
