Former F1 race director Michael Masi leaves FIA, governing body confirms

The Australian was sacked as race director in February following his mishandling of last season’s contentious season decider in Abu Dhabi, which provided Max Verstappen with the chance to beat Hamilton in a final-lap shootout. In February, the new FIA president Mohammed ben Sulayem said Masi had been offered a new role within the organisation. “The FIA confirms that Michael Masi has decided to leave the FIA and relocate to Australia to be closer to his family and take on new challenges,” an FIA statement said. The FIA thanks him for his commitment and wishes him the best for the future.”. Verstappen later accused the FIA of “throwing Masi under the bus” after he was stood down.
