Jones joins stewards for Korea

Alan Jones will join the stewards' panel for the inaugural Korean Grand Prix this weekend.
The 1980 Formula 1 world champion will be the latest drivers' representative to advise officials over a grand prix weekend, a role already undertaken this year by fellow former champions Emerson Fittipaldi, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill.
After securing the first drivers' world championship for Williams, Jones briefly retired from F1 following the 1981 season before returning to drive a string of uncompetitive cars for the now-defunct Arrows in 1983 and Team Haas in 1985-86.
During the 1990s, the Aussie competed in the Australian Touring Car Championship, making several notable appearances in the Bathurst 1000.
