Derek Warwick has signed to lead the Arrows Formula One line-up for 1987, the 32-year-old Englishman returning full-time to the F1 fold after a mixed 1986.
Twelve months ago, with no F1 seat available, he signed for the Silk Cut Jaguar endurance team, winning the Silverstone Six-Hour race with Eddie Cheever.
After Elio de Angelis was killed in a testing accident at Paul Ricard, Warwick was recruited to drive the second low-line Brabham BT55 alongside Riccardo Patrese. But it was a troubled interlude which did little to salvage his reputation.
The new Arrows A10 has been designed by Ross Brawn, former aerodynamicist with the now-defunct Team Haas Grand Prix outfit. Arrows will continue to use BMW four-cylinder engines serviced by Swiss engine specialist Heini Mader.
