Prost Signs Heidfeld
Newly crowned International F3000 Champion, Nick Heidfeld, will be the teammate of Jean Alesi for the 2000 season at the wheel of the Prost Peugeot AP 03. His contact with the Gauloises Prost Peugeot team is for one season with options for the future.
Alain Prost: "I am very happy to welcome Nick Heidfeld to the team today. With Jean Alesi, we have the perfect mixture of experience and youth. He will add an international dimension to the team, which is important for our partners.
"I want to take this opportunity to thank our current two drivers for the hard work they have done. Jarno has been with us for two full seasons and Olivier since the very beginning of the Prost Grand Prix adventure. I want to thank him particulary for his loyalty. I wish them both all the very best in their future careers."
