Max Verstappen’s 2021 Formula One title win WON’T be overturned despite FIA sacking race director Michael Masi following his scandalous decision in Abu Dhabi which robbed Lewis Hamilton of an eighth crown

Max Verstappen’s 2021 Formula One title win will not be overturned despite the sport’s governing body as good as admitting his victory was unjust by sacking race director Michael Masi. Mercedes ditched their plans to appeal against Masi’s decision in December after Hamilton told his team that he did not want his eighth title to be won in court – and they reiterated that stance on Thursday. Due to the controversial audio of Red Bull persuading Masi to make the decisions that led to Verstappen winning the title, Ben Sulayem has also announced that direct communications to the race director have been removed from the TV broadcast – and that teams may now only ask questions in a non-intrusive manner.
