FIA completes F1 shake-up with Nielsen brought in as sporting director

Nielsen, a veteran of 30 years in F1, will take up the role to address the FIA’s race management, which has been criticised with increasing intensity since the controversial finish to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2021. He has worked under Ross Brawn as sporting director with F1 management since 2017. At the FIA he will be responsible for F1 sporting matters, including race control, the remote operations centre and future sporting regulations. Crucially the 58-year-old will also oversee and work with the F1 race directors. The former McLaren technical director, Tim Goss, has also been promoted to FIA technical director. Whiting was the F1 director and as well as being race director, handling all the technical and sporting management.
