FIA appoints Johnny Herbert as first drivers' steward of 2012

Johnny Herbert serves this weekend in Australia as race steward. Johnny Herbert’s motor sport career began in 1974, aged 10, in karts. Five years later he was British junior karting champion and
by 1985 he’d won the Formula Ford Festival. A year later he took the Formula Ford 2000 title, while also competing in Formula 3.

In 1987 Herbert won the British F3 title and the F3 Super Grand Prix, successes which led to Formula One tests with Benetton that year and in 1988 with Team Lotus. But that same season brought a near-career-ending Formula 3000 accident. He recovered to race for the Benetton F1 team in 1989 and had a 160-race career, winning three grands prix before his retirement at the end of 2000. Herbert also won Le Mans, with Mazda, in 1991 and continued to race sportscars post-Formula One. He still races and last year competed in the VW Scirocco R Cup and the 24 Hours of Spa.
