Alain Prost and Dacia Duster top ‘Andros Trophy’ standings

Driving a Dacia Duster Ice, French driver Alain Prost won the Alpe d’Huez stage, the third stage of the Andros Trophy 2010/2011, thus remaining at the top of the standings, informs.

Four time winner of the world’s Formula 1 title, Prost won the first and the third stages of the season and secured precious points in the second stage too. The four laps were very quick, Alain Prost setting a record time of 57.468 seconds in the first lap on the Alpe d’Huez circuit. His car had a problem with its optical blocks in the first lap but it was later fixed.

“I love this circuit and I want another victory. This is the best way to end the first part of the season and to maintain my current lead. We already know that choosing the right tires is crucial for success because large tar-covered sections have already appeared on the circuit,” Alain Prost stated.

“This day was “nervously” difficult. I had everything on my side: a top car and four tires whose wear was perfectly controlled by the team. I only had to race perfectly. I am glad I’ve won in such a manner. It’s a perfect start to the season since I’ve finished on the podium in five out of six races,” he added. Before this stage Alain Prost had an 18-point lead over Jean Philippe Dayraut. At this moment Prost (Dacia Duster) totals 451 points, followed by Jean-Phillipe Dayraut (BMW) with 433 points and Olivier Panis (Skoda Fabia) with 427 points. Former Formula 1 pilot Jacques Villeneuve (Skoda Fabia) is on 10th place. The pilots will enter a two-week break, the competition set to resume on January 7-8 at the Isola 2000 resort.
