Salazar is Belgian GP steward
Chilean Eliseo Salazar makes his debut as an F1 driver steward in this weekend's Belgian GP at Spa Francorchamps.
Salazar, now 57, started 24 grands prix in the early eighties, for March, Ensign, ATS and RAM and had his last F1 start at Spa in '83, the first race on the revamped version of the Ardennes circuit.
He is, however, most well known for his incident in the 1982 German GP at Hockenheim when he tripped up race leader Nelson Piquet's Brabham and was then punched and kicked by the irate Brazilian defending world champion.
