Prost urges Mosley and Ecclestone to reconcile

But former champ stands ready to fill FIA role if called

Formula One legend Alain Prost fears a war between Max Mosley and Bernie Ecclestone could be disastrous for Formula One.

Setanta reports Prost told The Gulf Times now is the time for Formula One’s power brokers to make the right decision for the sport.

Not that anyone asked, but Prost said he would consider a role in governing the sport in a post-Max world if so asked, F1-Live.com reports.

Citing multiple sources, the site said Prost qualified he would not want to fill the specific role held by Mosley.

Instead, he would like to see the position split into two parts, a sporting role, and a general motoring role.

Prost said were it done, he would be happy in the sporting role, being experienced in dealing with the FIA, the World Motorsport Council, and the Formula One Commission.

Perhaps Alain can put his valuable experience running his Formula One team -- dealing with work stoppages, negotiating engine deals and signing sponsors -- to good use in his envisioned role.

Ferrari shakes down the new A1GP challenger

Ferrari test driver Andrea Bertolini ran the new F2004-based A1GP car for the first time last weekend at Fiorano.

The car is based on the one Michael Schumacher used to win the championship in 2004, and will carry the “Powered by Ferrari” badge.

Ferrari and the A1 technical team said they were encouraged by the test, according to A1GP.com, and now plan to put the car through an extensive program at both Fiorano and Imola’s Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari.
