German legend doubles down on scathing F1 rebuke

A motor racing legend has doubled down on his scathing opinion about modern Formula 1. Immediately after the 2021 championship finale between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton ended in high controversy, German two-time rally world champion Walter Rohrl vowed to not “waste a minute” watching any more grands prix. “I can save time and fool myself,” said the 74-year-old. “I have no sympathy for such decisions,” he added, referring to Masi’s handling of the fateful safety car period. He is also no fan of Formula 1’s new regulations for 2022, with design freedom of the radically different ‘ground effect’ cars limited by the FIA.
