Ferrari drivers Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello will launch a new international road safety campaign at this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix.

‘Think Before You Drive’ is a global initiative to promote safer driving, and is backed by the FIA Foundation and Bridgestone Corporation. The three-year campaign will be rolled out across Europe and parts of Africa and Latin America in 2005.

The official launch will take place on Thursday at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya, with Schumacher and Barrichello forming an elite pit crew to demonstrate the safety advice of the campaign.

Among the other participants in the launch will be Minekazu Fujimura, Chairman, CEO and President of Bridgestone Europe; and David Ward, Director General of the FIA Foundation.
