      he can wait out his retirement in a small office in FIA headquarters pushing papers from left to right for all I care.

      However; One of the persons mentioned as replacement, Niels Wittich, has not exactly covered himself with glory in DTM as of late:

      While I think Masi got a lot wrong and was very inconsistent with his rulings,I think the way the FIA set up the system,allowing teams to basically harass the race director during the race weekend was a really big problem and should have been stopped a long time ago.

      Anyway,I'm sure this new system of governance wont be perfect either but at least it should help reduce the teams pushing their agenda and bias onto the race director.

              Oh yes, it was wrong too.

              The direct link between teams and race director did make sense for certain areas, such as when the tires were failing in Baku - There the teams were able to dictate a race stop to change tires on safety grounds (even though, in reality teams should not have been allowed to push the tires to hard, but that is a different matter...) - But quite clearly, Masi allowed the system to be abused.

              While Charlie Whiting had years of experience to draw on, Masi had no such advantage, and through his incompetence revealed the broken system for what it was.

                Agree with that,hopefully the Fia will get a system in place now that is far less open to be abused by those shouting the loudest.

                I think the fact Masi was literally dropped in it when Charlie suddenly died just added to the instability of it as well.

                I was reading something on the BBC website I think it was.
                Even on non race weekends,Masi was travelling the world,looking and inspecting tracks.
                He was also attending the likes of Formula E races regularly as well.

                It just seems the job was asking way too much from one person,especially when they didnt have decades of experience to help them deal with the undoubted pressures of that most important jobs.

                  I hope Ferrari are back at the front this year. Be good to have another team in the mix and they are well over due a championship. Be interesting to see Sainz v Leclerc, was close last year with Sainz just edging it IIRC.

                    It'd be nice to see Ferrari and McLaren up there for sure but perhaps likelier to be Ferrari. I think it will be a good year with the new designs and underfloor aero that isn't impacted by following other cars. That was an ingenious rule change in my opinion.

                      I see Ferrari have reverted to the original version of the Ferrari red, the one used for a good few years was dictated by Marlboro sponsorship. Despite owning two red cars, I never liked the luminous red that they used.

                        How cool does this look, especially with the drivers helmet in camo too.

                          Yes! so much better. Just a shame the wheels aren't gold.

                            Hopefully they read this and make that change for the first race. Would look well IMO
