Mercedes did not force Masi out says Wolff

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes did not use threats to see Michael Masi removed as Formula 1 race director. Wolff agrees that the FIA’s changes were “necessary” as the outcome marred an otherwise “excellent season”. “We have to use this moment to make sure that this never happens to anybody else in the sport ever again,” said Hamilton. “Everything that’s been said by the FIA, I welcome that but we have to make sure that we keep a close eye and make sure that we actually are seeing those changes.”. “But that doesn’t necessarily change everything just yet,” said Hamilton. Former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher thinks political pressure, including that applied by Wolff and Hamilton, compelled the FIA to act regarding Masi’s position.
