Emerson Fittipaldi returns to the stewards panel for the Italian Grand Prix Double World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi will return to race steward duties for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix under the FIA’s excellent initiative to have a former driver on the stewards’ panel at each event.

This will be the Brazilian’s second stint in the role – his first being at Canada – that aims to offer greater transparency and consistency in decion-making of on-track incidents.

Other drivers to have fulfilled the duty this year include Alain Prost, Tom Kristensen, Johnny Herbert (twice), Alexander Wurz, Derek Warwick (three times), Damon Hill, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Nigel Mansell (twice) and Danny Sullivan.
