Derek Daly to serve as driver steward at Canadian Grand Prix

Experienced F1 drivers assist stewards as every race

After an incredibly busy month of May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, former Formula One drive, Derek Daly (in photo with son Conor) will head to Montreal to be an FIA Steward for the Canadian Grand Prix to be run this weekend. This will be Daly's second time having worked in the same capacity in Monza, Italy in 2012.

"It is an honor for me to assist in Montreal. I like to stay close to Formula One and I can't think of a better way than being directly plugged into race control,' said Daly.

In 2010, Formula One began recruiting experienced former F1 drivers to assist stewards in decision making relating to race incidents. A permanent panel of three FIA stewards attend every Grand Prix and are joined by an additional local steward at each race. Driver stewards provide a driver's perspective before potential penalties are assessed.
