Prost to continue splitting time between Formula E and WEC

Nicolas Prost says his plans for this year won't differ from 2015, when he shared his racing commitments between Formula E and the World Endurance Championship.

The Frenchman plans to continue his role with Rebellion's LMP1 effort for an eighth consecutive season and is expected to take part in all nine events with no calendar clashes between the two series.

"Yes, the plan this year is to keep exactly the same programme – Formula E with Renault eDams and WEC with Rebellion," he told Motorsport.

During the '15 season, Prost and his team-mates Mathias Beche and Nick Heidfeld finished first in their private LMP1 category, but were well off the overall LMP1 manufacturer pace, which Prost admits will be hard to close.

"Although I really hope we can get closer to the factories, it's not going to be easy. The gap is very big, and the regulations make it very hard to get closer."

The 34-year-old currently sits tenth in the Formula E standings after three rounds with 11 points, 51 adrift of leader Sebastien Buemi.
