‘There is nothing to say’: Lewis Hamilton will NOT speak to Michael Masi as the ex-race director returns to F1 paddock for the first time since his controversial mishandling of the 2021 title finale that cost the Brit a world championship

Lewis Hamilton said he will not speak to Michael Masi – the sacked Formula One referee accused of costing him a record eighth world championship – because ‘there is nothing to say’. Masi is back at an F1 paddock for the first time since his mishandling of the 2021 season decider in Abu Dhabi which provided Max Verstappen with the chance to beat Hamilton in a final-lap shootout and win the title. But asked if he plans to speak to Masi in Melbourne, and seek an explanation for what happened in Abu Dhabi, Hamilton replied: ‘I don’t. The race at Albert Park marks the 10th anniversary of Hamilton’s debut with Mercedes. But Hamilton added: ‘I feel amazing about it [his Mercedes future]. ‘It is my family, and I see myself being with Mercedes until my last days. ‘I would like to acknowledge the Brazil government,’ said Hamilton.
