‘Take the pressure and stress from him’ – FIA reveal why Michael Masi was sacked after Lewis Hamilton title controversy

MICHAEL MASI was axed from his role by the FIA “to take the pressure and stress from him” according to the organisation’s new president, Mohammed Ben Sulayem. “Now we are negotiating with him, of course, to stay in the FIA. “Now we want to move on, we have finished with the race analysis, now we have a new race in Bahrain, the beginning of the 2022 [season], with all the new cars, all the excitement. The FIA has appointed two new race directors in Niels Wittich and Eduardo Freitas, who will be supported by Herbie Blash. A new virtual race control room, F1’s equivalent to the video assistant referee in football, has also been set up. That’s the reason we brought some of our staff back like Herbie, for example, to support the race director.
