Johnny Herbert joins Jordan

Johnny Herbert was never a Formula 1 driver known for his organisational abilities but he was popular and one must suppose that his new role as Sporting Relations Manager of Jordan F1 is an attempt by the team management to improve the team's relationship with the sceptical Formula 1 media, which sees the entire operation as not very serious.

Herbert is 41 and enjoyed a Formula 1 career which lasted (on and off) for 11 years. He won three Grands Prix to add to his Le Mans 24 Hours victory for Mazda in 1991.
