meets Johnny Herbert!

Former Grand Prix driver Johnny Herbert returned to the F1 paddock this weekend, having been selected as the Drivers’ Representative for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

The Englishman retired from F1 competition at the end of the 2000 season, having won three Grands Prix in a career that started in 1989 with Benetton. He later raced for Lotus, Ligier, Benetton (again), Sauber, Stewart Racing and Jaguar before retiring.

Herbert has previously served in the Stewards’ office; last year, he worked at the Australian and Indian Grands Prix.

We were lucky enough to bump into Johnny as he walked through the paddock, and he kindly obliged us with a photo opportunity.
