Masi overwhelmed with tough job in 2021 says Ecclestone

Bernie Ecclestone has defended Formula 1’s under-fire race director, but he says some elements of the way the sport was run this year were “a disaster”. “It was a great race with the right result,” Ecclestone told Bild newspaper. “In the end, though, he made the right decision to let Lewis and Max race against each other again on the last lap. “All these team bosses on the radio trying to influence the decisions of the race director during the race. F1 managing director Ross Brawn appears to agree, vowing to stop team bosses from lobbying the race director during races. “It is not acceptable that the team bosses put Michael under such pressure during the race,” he said.
