Derek Warwick will be the former Grand Prix driver in Race Control at Barcelona this weekend as he keeps up the FIA's new-for-2010 scheme of placing one former racer alongside three other adjudicators.
So far this season Alain Prost, Tom Kristensen, Johnny Herbert and Alexander Wurz have shared their opinions over racing incidents, with the general view being that a more balanced view over on-track moments is now encouraging better racing.
Winner of the 1992 World Sports Car Championship with Jaguar, England's Warwick began racing go-karts in the 1960s and became the United Kingdom Southern Karting Champion at the age of 12.
He then progressed to Formula Ford, clinching second overall in both the British and World Championships, before winning the Vandervell Formula 3 title and achieving the runner-up spot in the BP Championship. Derek also finished second in the European Formula 2 Championship of 1980.
His Formula 1 debut came for Toleman in 1981 although his best two race finishes of second position came for Renault at the 1984 Belgian and British Grands Prix. As well as the spell in sports cars, Warwick also competed in F1 with Brabham, Arrows and Lotus - with whom he suffered a spectacular crash at the 1990 Italian Grand Prix - before leaving the sport after a disappointing season with Footwork in 1993.
There was an unsuccessful British Touring Car debut for Alfa Romeo in 1995 although Warwick finally clinched his first and only victory for Vauxhall on a dramatic and wet afternoon at Knockhill in 1998. A year earlier, he co-founded the 888 racing team which at the time ran the works Vauxhalls and which since has become one of the championship's most successful squads.
