Debut & McLaren (1995)
Jan had a one-off drive for McLaren in 1995 at Japan for the Pacific Grand Prix, he finished 10th - he took the place of the unwell Mika Hakkinen.
He signed for Stewart in 1997, however with an unreliable car neither he or his teammate Rubens Barrichello could make much impact on the championship. His best result was 7th in a rainy Monaco.
Jan raced the first 7 races for Stewart in 1998, then being replaced by Jos Verstappen. In his final F1 race, round 7 in Canada he scored his first, last and only point in Formula 1, 6th.
Since F1 he has raced in CART, Touring cars, and ALMS.
