Prost Grand Prix was a Formula One racing team managed by former world champion Alain Prost. The team participated in five seasons from 1997 to 2001.

Alain Prost completed the purchase of the Ligier team in early 1997, and immediately changed the name to Prost. An exclusive contract for Peugeot engines was announced for 1998, but the team continued with Ligier's planned Mugen-Hondas for 1997.

In 2000 the team began its sharp decline into oblivion. Despite a promising driver lineup, the team finished joint last in the championship with Minardi, both teams failing to score a single point in the whole season.

In 2001 the cars now ran with Acer-badged Ferrari engines. At the end of the season, speculation began surrounding the fate of the team in the light of its increasing debts. Finally, in early 2002 the team went bankrupt, just before the start of the season. Prost had been unable to raise enough sponsorship to keep the team afloat. Deeply hurt by the episode, Prost described it as a disaster for France.
