‘Team orders’ steward Sullivan back to work in Singapore

Sep.23 (GMM) Danny Sullivan will be in the stewards room this weekend in Singapore.

The 1985 Indy 500 winner debuted in the FIA’s new driver-representative role at Hockenheim in July.

There, he was famously involved in the decision to fine Ferrari $100,000 and summon the team to the World Motor Sport Council for imposing illegal team orders.

60-year-old American Sullivan’s formative racing career took place in European open wheel series, but he raced in CART before switching to formula one with Tyrrell in 1983.

He returned to America in 1984, winning the series in 1988 before announcing his retirement whilst recovering from a crash in 1995.
