Derek Warwick will make his fourth appearance as the driver representative on the Formula 1 stewards' panel at this weekend's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The 57-year-old contested 146 grands prix between 1981 and 1993, driving for the Toleman, Renault, Lotus and Arrows teams. He also raced in sportscars with great success, winning the world championship and Le Mans 24 Hours with Peugeot in 1992.

His driving career ended with a stint in the British Touring Car Championship, where he was also a successful team co-owner, in the late 1990s.

Warwick first joined the stewards for last year's Spanish and Hungarian GPs, and returned for Turkey this season.

He also recently succeeded Damon Hill as president of the British Racing Drivers' Club, owner of the Silverstone circuit.
