The president of the international motoring association FIA, Mohammed Ben Sulayem, says that he is ready to put the infamous ex-race director Michael Masi, who, according to some believe, Lewis Hamilton's eighth Formula One world title, to the position in F1.
Before resigning as race director, the Australian was accused of mismanaging the final race at Abu Dhabi 2021 when he allowed the race to finish under racing conditions after a short procedure, instead of it ending behind the safety car.
But Ben Sulayem, who took over the leadership of the FIA from Jean Todt at the end of the 2021 season, is ready to hand the position back to the Australian. "I always apologize, but I cannot apologize for something that was done before my time," said Ben Sulayem. "I will apologize anyway, but I will bring Michel Masi back."
Ever since Lewis Hamilton lost the 2021 championship, Masi has been the victim of attacks, insults and even death threats. "A poor man is just a man who has been attacked. He went through hell and if I see an opportunity that the FIA needs him, I will call him back," promised 62-year-old Ben Sulayem, who revealed that he himself had received death threats, "because I had the power to change the result of the championship .”
