The FIA has been using the expert advice of a number of former racing drivers for a number of years. These former racers are handed the task of overviewing and investigating incidents that happen during a race, and hand out a punishment if one is necessary.
Since the start of 2014, fourteen drivers have been taken in. Mick Doohan, Emerson Fittipaldi, Jochen Mass and Adrian Fernandez have all just appeared on one occasion. The FIA seem more keen on the likes Derek Warwick (11 times), Danny Sullivan (11 times) and Emanuele Pirro (10 times).
Tom Kristensen and Mika Salo have also been stewards on five occasions each, while Martin Donnelly, Nigel Mansell, Derek Daly, Mark Blundell and Alan Jones have been advisors several times. From the figures, it appears that Derek Warwick is the harshest steward.
Here are the figures from the seventy races from the start of 2014;
