FIA reveals changes to Formula 1 structure

The FIA has announced the changes that were made to its Formula 1 structure.

The overhaul of the FIA’s F1 structure followed a review of the organization’s “internal procedures” that were initiated by Ben Sulayem at the beginning of 2023.

Nikolas Tombazis, who was previously the FIA’s technical director, was appointed as the new single-seater director.

Sporting, technical, financial, and strategy & operations directors will report to Tombazis. The FIA confirmed that Steve Nielsen, Tim Goss, Federico Lodi, and Francois Sicard had been appointed to those positions respectively.

“We have dedicated a lot of time and effort to making significant, informed changes to our Formula 1 team to create the right structure with the right people to oversee the future regulation of the sport,” Ben Sulayem commented.

“By developing and empowering people within our organization, as well as bringing in expertise and experience from the outside, I am confident that we are in the best position possible to move forward together with our partners at FOM and the Formula 1 teams.”

“I am excited and honored to be taking on this new position within the FIA, and very grateful to the president for the trust he is demonstrating towards me,” Tombazis added.

“We have a group of extremely talented and dedicated people who work flat out to deliver the level of regulation that Formula 1 demands and deserves, and I fully believe this new structure will take our resources to the next level and allow us to make continual improvements.”
