Steve Nielsen: F1 veteran appointed FIA sporting director

Formula 1 veteran Steve Nielsen has taken a new role with governing body the FIA with the aim of fixing the sport’s race-management problems. “He is a highly respected professional in our sport, and we fully support his move to the FIA. The move to employ Nielsen to oversee race operations has widespread support among the F1 teams. Part of Nielsen’s new role will be to oversee the race directors and guide them in difficult circumstances. As FIA F1 director, Whiting oversaw all technical and sporting matters within the sport and also acted as race director and official starter. Tombazis’ new role is an echo of Whiting’s former position as F1 director, but within a structure that offers more support.
