President Ben Sulayem GIVES UP ‘hands-on control’ of F1 and faces fight to stay in office after controversies

FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem has given up his hands-on-control of Formula One following several controversies. Ben Sulayem made the unexpected announcement via a letter he sent to team chiefs earlier this week. The Daily Mail claim that he remains in his position as one of the most powerful people in motorsport but he is taking a step back following criticism from allies. Ben Sulayem’s letter read: “My stated objective was to be a non-executive president via the recruitment of a team of professional managers, which has now been largely completed. F1 executives slammed Ben Sulayem for speaking out on the deal, which has supposedly further damaged the wedge between current owners Liberty Media and the FIA.
