Tom Kristensen to be F1 driver steward in Australia

Thu, 25 March 2010, 08:01

Mar.25 (GMM) Tom Kristensen has been named as the driver representative on the F1 stewards panel at this weekend’s Australian grand prix.

After Alain Prost took up the duties in Bahrain two weeks ago, now it is the turn of Kristensen, a famous Danish sports car driver at Le Mans.

The 42-year-old’s actual F1 experience is limited, including test driver roles with Minardi, Tyrrell and Jaguar, and with Michelin as the French supplier prepared its F1 foray with a Williams car in 2000.

But he has won Le Mans no fewer than 8 times, and was a champion in F3 before racing in F3000 and DTM.
