Johnny Herbert will serve on the Indian Grand Prix stewards' panel

Three-time Grand Prix winner Johnny Herbert will make his fifth appearance on the FIA Stewards’ panel at this weekend’s Indian Grand Prix, serving the role of Drivers’ Representative.

The 47-year-old enjoyed a lengthy Formula 1 career between 1989 and 2000, driving for the likes of Benetton, Tyrrell, Lotus, Ligier, Sauber, Stewart and Jaguar. His wins came at the 1995 British and Italians Grands Prix (with Benetton) and the 1999 European Grand Prix (with Stewart). He also won the 1991 Le Mans 24 Hours for Mazda.

After hanging up his helmet, the Englishman has still continued to be involved in motorsport, competing in the Le Mans Series, the short-lived SpeedCar Series, as well as the British Touring Car Championship.

He also briefly served as the Jordan and Midland F1 team’s Sporting Director between 2005-6.

Herbert’s last appearance on the FIA Stewards’ roster was at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix. Last year, he served on the panels for the Malaysian, Turkish and Brazilian races.
