Emerson Fittipaldi is resuming his role as a special formula one steward at this weekend's Italian grand prix.

The 63-year-old double world champion kicked off his FIA duties in the fourth steward role at Montreal in June.

Also confirmed by F1's governing body ahead of the Monza event are reported changes to the chicanes.

The FIA, meeting for a World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris on Wednesday, said the areas behind the apex kerbs at turns 1 and 4 have been laid with a ramped concrete section.

The sections will ensure that the chances of a car becoming airborne after running over the kerbs are minimised.
