McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl admits Abu Dhabi decision was ‘very controversial and not good’ for Formula One, but insists it was just ONE of a number of high-profile mistakes that must be acknowledged

McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl says the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was the highest profile among a series of controversial decisions made by officials last year. But that was just one of a number of mistakes during the season, including at the Belgian Grand Prix, according to Seidl. Controversial decisions had a negative effect on F1 this season, but the McLaren boss wants to create an environment where mistakes can be openly acknowledged. ‘It is clear that what happened in Abu Dhabi was very controversial and not good for the sport,’ said Seidl, quoted by BBC Sport. ‘If you look at the entire season, a lot of controversial things happened that were overall not good for the sport. And we need to accept mistakes can happen on the team side and on the FIA side.
