The FIA has announced Dr. Ian Roberts as its replacement for ex-medical chief Gary Hartstein, who was dropped by the governing body at the end of the 2012 Formula 1 season. He will take on the role of the sport's Medical Rescue Coordinator, reporting directly to Professor Jean-Charles Piette, the permanent F1 Medical Delegate.
Roberts, a consultant in anaesthesia and intensive care, is known in the paddock for acting as Chief Medical Officer at Silverstone, including the British Grand Prix. In addition to his advanced HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) skills, he sits on the FIA Institute and the UK’s Motor Sports Association medical advisory panels.
Roberts will be on standby in the medical car and supervise local response teams throughout the 2013 campaign, while Piette oversees the process from race control.
