JONATHAN McEVOY: Mercedes have been handed Michael Masi’s head… but it is a month too late and it is time for F1 to move on from the Abu Dhabi debacle

It only took 97 days to write up seven pages stating mostly the blindingly obvious about the final race debacle in Abu Dhabi. They should have published the report when they threw their chief official Michael Masi under the bus last month. They had already been handed what they wanted most: Masi’s head. As well as putting into print the sweeping changes they outlined last month to the race directorship — two new incumbents and an experienced adviser in old hand Herbie Blash, a review system, a limit on radio exchanges — the FIA’s report struck a decent balance. They admitted ‘human error’ while also stressing that Masi ‘acted in good faith’.
