Former Formula 1 race director Michael Masi has pledged silence with the FIA after the controversial 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The Australian is said to have signed a contract preventing him from revealing details related to what happened in the final race of the season, where Max Verstappen won his first F1 world title.
The race is far from forgotten even a few months later, as Masi is said to have made a mistake, allowing the Dutchman to overtake his only rival for the title, Lewis Hamilton, in the decisive race. After the disputed race, Masi remained under the auspices of the FIA for some time, after which he announced a few days ago that he was returning to his homeland.
In a conversation with his colleagues at the Daily Telegraph, he is said to have revealed that he signed a document with the FIA that obliges him to remain silent about what happened, where, according to the official explanation of the FIA, he made a mistake and mismanaged the race in the last laps.
Just a few days ago, Masi revealed that he received harsh criticism and death threats after the said race, and social networks are still full of accusations and harsh words at his expense. The former racing director's commitment to silence, as is usually the case in such cases, raises more questions than it answers.
