Former Indy 500 winner Danny Sullivan has been named as the FIA’s driver representative steward for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix, a role he last took up at the season-opener in Australia. The American entered Formula 1 in 1983 with the Tyrrell squad, picking up a points finish in Monaco. Returning to the U.S. after just one season, he resumed a successful IndyCar career, picking up the 1985 Indy 500 crown, later claiming the overall title in 1988. Sullivan has served as driver steward on four previous occasions. Alongside the aforementioned race in Melbourne, he was on the panel at the Hockenheim and Singapore races of 2010, and at the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2012.
