Derek Warwick will make his fifth appearance as the driver’s representative on the stewards panel at Hockenheim.

The 57-year-old has previously performed the duties at last year’s races in Turkey and Abu Dhabi and again this season in Spain and Hungary.

The Briton turned out in 146 grand prixs, racing for the Toleman, Renault, Brabham, Arrows, Lotus and Footwork teams.

It was during the tail-end of his F1 career that Warwick was most successful, becoming World Sportscar Champion in 1992 and winning the Le Mans 24 hour the following year.

Warwick will be joined on the panel by Paul Gutjahr ,a Formula One steward since 1995, and Tim Mayer, FIA delegate to the USA.
