Nigel Mansell, the 1992 Formula 1 World Champion and four-time winner of the British Grand Prix, will serve as the Drivers’ Representative on the FIA Stewards’ Panel at this weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
The 59-year-old – who now enjoys his retirement and the occasional round of golf minus his famous moustache – is still considered among the greatest racing drivers ever produced in the UK.
He claimed a total of 32 pole positions, 31 race wins and 28 further podium finishes in his 187-race career, driving for the likes of Lotus, Williams and (very forgettably) McLaren before retiring in mid-1995. He also became the first driver to win the IndyCar championship crown in his rookie season in 1993.
He served on the Stewards’ Panel at last year’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone, a venue where he claimed emphatic wins in 1987, 1991 and in 1992, the year in which he romped to the Drivers’ Championship title with Williams.
