Mansell to be F1 steward at Silverstone  (GMM)  1992 world champion Nigel Mansell will be the driver-representative in the FIA stewards' room this weekend at Silverstone.

Before retiring in 1995, the 1992 world champion won the British grand prix four times (1986-7 and 1991-2).

In 2008, countryman Lewis Hamilton won at Silverstone on the way to his own sole title.

"Nigel Mansell used to say he'd gain half a second a lap at Silverstone just down to the support of the crowd," said the McLaren driver.

"I'm not so sure about that because you're always on the limit.  But you do get an extra couple of tenths of a second just by your natural feeling out there," said Hamilton this week.

Mansell, now 56 and minus his famous moustache, contested 191 grands prix and won 31 times for Williams and Ferrari.
