The FIA has officially confirmed that former Formula 1 race director Michael Masi left the federation

Masi became F1 race director in 2019 after Charlie Whiting suddenly passed away several days before the Australian GP. Masi was replaced by Niels Wittich and Eduardo Freitas following the controversial ending of the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP. However, Masi got a new position at the FIA.

On Tuesday, the federation released a statement, in which confirmed Masi’s departure.

“The FIA confirms that Michael Masi has decided to leave the FIA and relocate to Australia to be closer to his family and take on new challenges,” the statement read.

“He oversaw a three-year period as FIA Formula 1 race director and safety delegate following the sudden passing of Charlie Whiting in 2019, carrying out the numerous functions he was tasked with in a professional and dedicated manner.

“The FIA thanks him for his commitment and wishes him the best for the future.”
