Although Hans officially retired from the Formula One racing scene in 1995, he has been Formula One columnist in 1997 for BILD, Germany’s biggest newspaper, and in 1999 he won the American Le Mans Series GT Personality of the Year Award. Hans has been involved in various activities: he was named an honorary lifetime commander for his contribution to the elite GSG-9 anti-terrorist troops in Germany and is also an ambassador for Miami-based Dolphin Aid. In 2008, he took on the role of motor sport representative for Volkswagen.
