Prost Grand Prix today confirmed that its technical director, Alan Jenkins would no longer be working with the team.

This split had been widely rumored once Jenkins failed to make an appearance at last weekend's Monaco Grand Prix. At the time, the team denied the rift, but most observers were not convinced.

Alain Prost, the team principal, stressed that the change will not have a detrimental effect on the team: "I am confident in our existing technical staff and I look forward to a productive future. We hope we can get the results our partners and supporters expect from us in the very near future."

Jean-Paul Gousset, head of the Prost design office for the past two years, is taking over Jenkins' activities and duties immediately.
