Hill joins Monaco stewards panel
13 May 2010 – Damon Hill will serve as the former racing driver in FIA Race Control for the sixth round of the championship this weekend. As well as being the World Champion of 1996, the Englishman is also a past pole position winner in Monte-Carlo, having started at the front of the grid for Williams-Renault in 1995.
After retired from Formula 1 following a disappointing season with Jordan in 1999, Hill has since been recognised as the Chairman of the British Racing Drivers' Club (BRDC), owners of Silverstone, and has been a key player in the recent positive discussions which sealed the next 17-year outlook of the British Grand Prix.
With leading names in the sport predicting a highly dramatic and perhaps controversial qualifying session on Saturday, Hill could be faced with several intriguing situations in the stewards' office as F1 welcomes the most cars to the tight and twisting street track since the year when Damon clinched his pole.
The following drivers have acted as stewards in 2010:
Monaco Damon Hill
Spain Derek Warwick
China Alexander Wurz
Malaysia Johnny Herbert
Australia Tom Kristensen
Bahrain Alain Prost
