It doesn't mention which class though. He might be a lot more effective in Austin A30's.To be fair, to drive an inferior F1 car around a circuit within a couple of seconds a lap of Max and Sir Lewis is no mean feat. The problem is, he didn't get there on merit and there are quite a few drivers who are more deserving of a crack at it, so he will have to put up with being a target.

His behaviour off track doesn't add to his popularity either.

The FIA doesn't want to replace Masi because then that would say to the world that the sport's governing body was in the wrong. However, if his dismissal is the only thing that will satisfy people (read: Daimler, which spends an awful lot of money - increasingly unwillingly as I understand it - on F1 and would happily walk away given half a chance) then he will have to be dismissed.

The question of a successor is ridiculous. There has to be succession planning in any role - what would have happened if Masi had got Covid and had to isolate in the middle of a back-to-back-to-back run of races? Hmmm....

Let's not forget that Masi only got the job because Charlie Whiting went to bed in Melbourne and didn't wake up again. He was a junior being lined up for the job at some point, and presumably, someone is now doing the job that he was doing before. The fact that this person isn't on first-name terms with Martin Brundle and his ego doesn't necessarily mean that they don't exist.

But... and it's a big old but... the only reason to dump Masi would if he was found to have made an error of such colossal proportions that the results in Abu Dhabi were void as a result... which would hand the championship to Lewis, wouldn't it?

And if that happened, you might just annoy Red Bull enough for there to be repercussions which are more painful to the FIA than Mercedes leaving. Red Bull provides two teams in F1, and even more importantly it pays a lot of money to be the promoter of the World Rally Championship, the European Rally Championship and the World Rallycross Championship.

Driver#8, see my post 2764 on previous page as to how Masi probably got the position and possible replacements/backup.

What ever happens due to the date for the report being published Masi seems very likely to be in charge for at least the first race as the FIA would have to replace him in less than 24 hours and that's not very likely to happen.

NO, if the result were void then Verstappen would still be champion. Equal in point but with one more win before AD.

Ahh, okay. The fact that either of them was in the running by Abu Dhabi remains a sore point with me and I don't much care either way. It's like picking a favourite broken limb. But whether or not these wretched men - and by that I mean the drivers, the team bosses, Liberty and Netflix - leave anything untainted by the way they have allowed F1 to develop is at stake.

The FIA needs to step up to the plate and take some responsibility. And it doesn't have a great track record on that.

There's been many instances in football when an obvious clanger has been made by the referee or now the much vaunted VAR system.

They don't go back, perhaps the referee is moved to the waggo doggy food league in some far off corner for a while, they do not void the result.

In football the right or wrong decision can cost a club millions ,if for instance it meant they did not qualify for Champions League, motor racing is like football, a business now.

AD is over its done, it WAS wrong, regardless of what anyone says from either camp, Masi did not allow the last lapped car to pass, which it clearly states in the regulations, it isn't going to change,everything has to move on, I personally am ,for my sins, a McLaren fan,have been since Emmos day so I haven't an axe to grind re Max or Hammy.

The new season approaches,yet now there's inter team discord over potential payments for six sprint races,which could mean no sprint races.

On a positive note the new era of Hybrid WRC cars kicks off later this week in Monte Carlo, I hope they set good Karma to rub off on effing ones teams.

Just read they military flypasts in the build up to any grand prix are to be banned, I would image the red arrows and their French and Italian counterparts create less carbon emissions than Livery continuously adding extra races.
But extra races makes more profit,so let's ditch the planes by green washing.
