Today at the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne, host to the first Grand Prix of the season (4th March), the Prost Acer team unveiled the 2001 livery of its car, the Prost Acer AP04.

The trademark Prost blue of the cars is this season enhanced by the team's new partners' logos: : PSN, Acer, Adecco, Parmalat, Dark Dog, Brastemp and Michelin. These companies, some of them for the first time in Formula One, join the team's existing partners Catia, New Man, Altran and Sodexho. The car's colours were unveiled to a crowd of international press by Prost Grand Prix's President Alain Prost, drivers Jean Alesi and Gaston Mazzacane, surrounded by a newly motivated race team, all of them eager to start this promising new season.

" I feel we are finally ready to step up and achieve credible gains this year ", said Alain Prost. " In the pre-season, the team and its technical partners Ferrari and Michelin have worked very hard and their efforts have paid off. The AP04 ran on the track quite early and since its first test, it has performed well and consistently ", he continued.

" Our initial focus has been on reliability and we seem to have achieved that. Our next objective is to improve upon our already good performance of the winter tests. An intense development programme has been put in place and will be carried out throughout the season. "

" I am confident ", he concluded, " that Prost Grand Prix and its partners will see positive results from the very first races of the season. "
