Alan Jones takes steward role for India
24 October 2012 – Former World Champion Alan Jones is the FIA representative steward for this weekend’s second Grand Prix of India. The Australian, who claimed the world title in 1980, is making his first appearance in the position this season.
Jones took up the adjudicator position for last year’s Japanese and Korean Grands Prix, carrying with him the experience of 116 Formula 1 race starts, 12 victories and 24 podium finishes between 1977 and 1982.
Hailing from Melbourne, Jones made F1 history by becoming the first Williams World Champion. A year earlier, in 1979, he would have clinched the outfit’s maiden race victory but dropped out of the British Grand Prix with a broken water pump.
