Baku F1 coverage ‘a disaster’ – Prost

Alain Prost has described the coverage of last weekend’s inaugural race in Baku as a “disaster”.

While the street circuit itself was lauded for its spectacular layout and scenery, the F1 legend says he was bored whilst watching the television coverage.

“It was the first time in years that I could not follow free practice and qualifying,” said Prost, “but the widespread enthusiasm on social media meant that when I sat on the couch to watch the race I had great expectations.

“But the only thrill I saw was the left-right bend at the end of the lap,” he is quoted by La Gazzetta dello Sport as saying at the FIA conference in Turin.

“So there was something that was not working. For a young or inexperienced viewer they would have got the idea that driving in F1 is not too far away from the Playstation,” said the quadruple world champion and Renault ambassador.
