Social media ‘bad for F1′ – Prost image

May 23 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Alain Prost has wondered aloud if social media is actually a good thing for formula one.

2015 so far has been a period of intense introspection for the F1 world, as it considers making key rule changes to rekindle interest.

But Prost, one of the all-time greats and a quadruple world champion, wonders if the days of social media like Twitter have actually worsened the problem.

“Obviously in my day there were not these social networks,” the 60-year-old told Speed Week.

“In my opinion they contribute to the current problems of formula one. I think it’s bad that the fans are constantly making their bad comments,” Prost added.
