Sullivan named as driver steward for Australia
12 March 2013 – Danny Sullivan will serve as the FIA's driver representative steward for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, a role he has held on three previous occasions.
Sullivan, who hails from America, contested a sole Formula 1 season with Tyrrell back in 1983, picking up a points finish on the streets of Monte Carlo. He later returned to his home country to pursue his IndyCar career, winning the Indianapolis 500 in 1985.
After picking up the overall IndyCar crown in 1988, Sullivan went on to make four 24 Hours of Le Mans starts. His best finish came in 2004, when he guided a Dauer Porsche 962 to third place along with Thierry Boutsen and Hans-Joachim Stuck.
The two assisting stewards for the weekend will be Paul Gutjahr, President of the Swiss Motorsport Federation and the FIA Hill Climb Commission, and Vincenzo Spano, President of the Sports Commission of the Venezuelan Automobile Club.
