Daly joins stewards for Monza

Derek Daly to act as steward at Monza
Derek Daly has been named as the FIA driver steward for the final round of the European F1 season this weekend at Monza.

The Irishman started 49 races during his F1 career, driving for Ensign, March, Tyrell and Williams and took a best finish of joint tenth in the championship standings in 1980 – finishing level on points with the likes of Keke Rosberg, John Watson and Gilles Villeneuve.

Daly also completed in Champ Car and at Le Mans, with his full-time racing career ending in 1990. Since then, the 58-year-old has become better known for his broadcasting career while his son Conor is now competing in Indy Lights and GP3.

"I was a little skeptical at first when I heard that former F1 drivers were to be used in a stewards role as they have always had such varying opinions on the issues,” Daly said. “However, I have to say that using former drivers appears to have been a positive and I'm very much looking forward to it."
