Panis leading when he crashed at Canada 1997Edit

The detailed race report here: [1] puts him no higher than seventh, and probably rather lower, after an incident packed race. I've reverted 'while leading' on this basis. If you have a source for him leading then I'm happy to discuss. Cheers—Preceding unsigned comment added by 4u1e (talkcontribs)

Article NameEdit

"Prost Grand Prix was a Formula 1 racing team managed by former world champion Alain Prost. The team participated in five seasons from 1997 to 2001."

Why isn't this article called Prost Grand Prix? The policy seems to be to use the team's actual name, so I think this article should be moved.--Diniz 20:30, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

If no-one objects, I will shortly move the article...--Diniz 17:41, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
Moved it. Under the Grounds that "Prost" is the team's shortname. "Prost Grand Prix" is the official name and many sources that state the team's full name always cite: "Prost GP" or "Prost Grand Prix", the "GP" bit is obviously an abbreviation of "Grand Prix".--Skully Collins 12:42, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

FrentzenEdit

Um i dont remember ever seeying Frentzen drive for Prost GP??? 18 April 2007

Then you weren't paying attention. He replaced Alesi for the last 5 races of 2001. DH85868993 15:44, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

HistoryEdit

I have changed the article so that the history of the team gets divided into one complete section instead of 4. Please revert if you aren't happy (and please tell me what you think on my talk page) LB22 (talk) 18:57, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

History 2Edit

I have a bit revised language and sectioning of "History". I removed some silly references to other episodes (for example, why are we interested in the fact Alesi had previously won Canadian GP?) not related to Prost. Language was too emphatic sometimes, and I tried to dry it down as possible. --Attilios (talk) 10:38, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

1998 Points Seem wrongEdit

According to the 1998 Spa GP article, Trulli finished 6th and got a point in that race in a Prost-Peugeot car. But in this article he is shown as retired in that race. He is shown as 6th in ITA, where he actually finished 13th. He is shown as 13th in Austria...and so on. The pattern of results seems offset one race. Are the country labels wrong? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.120.240.56 (talk) 06:16, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

The race labels are at the top of each year row. So if you look at the "6" in Trulli's 1998 row, the corresponding race label is "BEL", two lines above. The "ITA" immediately below the 6 is the heading for the results of the 1999 Italian GP (where the results were Panis 11th, Trulli Retired). DH85868993 (talk) 06:28, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
