As part of an effort to field an all-French team, Alain Prost
early in 1997 completed the purchase of the Ligier team for $30
million. They will continue to use the Mugen Honda engine for
this season but will take over the very promising Peugeot works
deal from Jordan for 1998. It is thought that this development
may prompt Michelin to make a return to F1.
