Mohammed Ben Sulayem absent from first F1 Commission of 2023

The controversy arose because the rules had been changed with the intention of clarifying the points system for races that did not run to full distance, but the wording used had failed to achieve its aim. Among other additions to the rules, new, improved wet-weather tyres were approved. Among other changes agreed were a relaxation of the regulation of radio messages between drivers and teams at grands prix, and of the use of ‘parc ferme’ at the sprint events. The new approach “allows a greater scope to change components that are prone to getting damaged”. The changes are all subject to approval by the FIA’s legislative body, the World Motorsport Council, which Ben Sulayem chairs.
