In an attempt to speed up stewards’ decisions and avoid disputes like the ‘cool fuel’ issue in the last Brazilian Grand Prix, the FIA has decided, starting from this season, to introduce a new structure for race stewards. Max Mosley told reporters that permanent steward Tony Scott-Andrews would not be replaced. Instead, there would be a non-voting administrator in Alan Donnelly.

Max Mosley: “Alan Donnelly will be there at all the races. The idea is that he will be non-voting. There will be three stewards that vote but Alan’s job will be first of all to make an interface between them and the race control and the press and so on.”

“Secondly, it will be to try and keep some sort of momentum so that we get the decisions quickly; there is no excuse for taking as long as it has.”
