Former grand prix driver Derek Daly will join the stewards' panel for this weekend's Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
The 58-year-old Irishman competed in grand prix racing from 1978 to 1982 with the Ensign, Theodore, March, Tyrrell and Williams teams.
He last competed in a race car 21 years ago in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
"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," said Daly.
"However, I have to say that using former drivers appears to have been a positive and I'm very much looking forward to it."
