Ex-champions to attend Bahrain GP
All the living world champions will attend this year's season opener in Bahrain to mark Formula One's 60th anniversary.
"This will be a truly special occasion, especially for all those who love F1 and who have been following the sport for many years," Whitaker said.
Four world champions will race at the event with Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button all confirmed for next season. Kimi Raikkonen could also attend as the date, March 14, does not clash with his rallying schedule.
Up to 20 of the historic cars driven by the champions will be on display, in what Whitaker believes will be "something spectacular".
