Masi defends Turkey over track surface condition

F1 race director Michael Masi has defended organisers of the Turkish GP for the state of the Istanbul circuit’s new asphalt surface. Even in Sunday’s race, drivers continued to complain about what they described as the lowest-grip surface they have ever encountered in Formula 1. “This weekend was not what we expect in Formula 1,” Williams’ George Russell said. “The essence of Formula 1 is a competition between the best cars, the best drivers and the best teams on the best tracks. “It was necessary to do a huge amount of work to prepare the track for this grand prix and it was only possible with the support of the Turkish government and the owners of the circuit,” Masi added.
