Frentzen, Herbert and Wurz to become stewards
13 March 2010 – As part of the FIA's new plan to place a former driver in the position as race steward on every Grand Prix weekend of the season, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Johnny Herbert, Alexander Wurz have also now also been named as candidates.
"It's a good move," Prost told BBC Sport of the decision from FIA President Jean Todt. "Jean and I have discussed many times that an ex-driver should be part of the discussions - it's important that the FIA (Formula 1's governing body) can have the experience of a racing driver.
"It's an experiment, so we will see how it goes; normally the stewards have never done any racing but we should not over-estimate it as they know the rules and have the experience, so it will be a good combination. What you want to avoid are big penalties for normal racing incidents and also very bad manoeuvres which receive no penalty."
