Mark Blundell

Mark Blundell finished on the podium three times in his 61-race career that spanned 1991 to 1995 with the Brabham, Ligier, Tyrrell and McLaren teams. One of his podium finishes occurred at the Circuit de Catalunya, when he finished third at the 1994 race in a Tyrrell Yamaha.

A winner of the 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 race – teaming up with Martin Brundle to contest last year’s Daytona 24
