Mark Blundell

Former Grand Prix and CART driver Mark Blundell will serve as the Drivers’ Representative on the FIA Stewards’ panel at this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix.

This will be the Englishman’s second time in the official’s seat, with his first appearance coming almost two years ago at the Spanish Grand Prix in 2011.

Mark Blundell, 1993 Australian Grand PrixBlundell finished on the podium three times in his 61-race career that spanned 1991 to 1995 with the Brabham, Ligier (pictured), Tyrrell and McLaren teams.

A winner of the 1992 Le Mans 24 Hours, Blundell moved to the CART scene in 1996 and won three races during his stint in North America, before later moving into a role as a pundit (and occasional commentator) with ITV’s coverage of Formula 1.

He still dabbles in the odd sports car outing today. but most of his time is spent fronting his driver management organisation, 2MB – co-founded with former teammate Martin Brundle – which oversees the motorsport careers of McLaren reserve driver Gary Paffett and IndyCar Series racer Mike Conway.
