Niels Wittich has been appointed as the race director for the first race of the Formula 1 season.

Wittich is one of the two race directors appointed by the FIA following Michael Masi’s removal after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix controversy.

Wittich has extensive experience in Germany’s DTM series as well as the FIA Formula E championship, though he was set to increase his involvement in Formula 1 either way.
