One of endurance racing’s most successful stars will make a return to the FIA Stewards’ panel for the final Formula 1 race of the 2012 season.
The sport’s governing body has confirmed that Tom Kristensen will reprise his role as the drivers’ representative at this weekend’s even at Sao Paulo.
While never having raced in F1 – the closest he came were separate test outings for Minardi (pictured) and Tyrrell in 1998 – the Danish racer has a variety of experiences to draw from, particularly in Le Mans and DTM racing, in which he proved particularly successful.
Kristensen is an eight-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, an all-time record.
It will be the second time this season that Kristensen has served on the Stewards’ panel, with his last outing coming at the Spanish Grand Prix in May.
