FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem says the FIA will “analyse the rules” regarding what happened at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and “make the necessary improvements”.

After the controversial ending of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, that saw the FIA ignore the rules of the Safety Car, which basically handed Max Verstappen the 2021 championship, FIA’s World Motorsport Council decided it will hold a “clarification exercise” regarding the situation.

 

 

 

 

While in Spain, newly elected FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem told the local media that it could lead to rule changes.

 

 

 

“I have studied all the facts,” Ben Sulayem said.

“We have a dynamic sport and the rules also have to be dynamic. Rules should always be improved.

 

 

 

 

“The development of motorsport is going very fast and you have to adapt to that, but being proactive rather than reactive.

 

 

 

“Decisions will be made to move forward, without pressure from anyone. But that does not mean that we are not going to analyse the rules and make the necessary improvements.

 

 

 

 

“The rules are written by humans, not by gods, so they have to be evolved by men as well,” the FIA’s president concluded.

 

 

 

We have to note here that while the rules can definitely be improved, the main problem at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix were not the rules, but the fact that they were not followed.

  1. If the rules weren’t followed then the results are not valid and sir Lewis should be awarded with the championship and a public apology.

  2. If the FIA are finally admitting the “Rules were not followed” then why are they not reversing the decision and giving Lewis Hamilton his 8th title? Also why is Michael Masi still in his job?

  3. Looks like they’re trying to appease the supporters
    Only way now is to sack masi , write a public apology and declare a drawn championship

  4. So the FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem looked at the evidence and concluded the rules WERE NOT FOLLOWED. Admitting Masi acted wrongfully by not following the rules why has THE RESULT NOT BEEN NULLIFIED? And Lewis crowned not only the winner of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix but rightly crowned World Champion? Is this also not breaking some rule?

  5. Lewis would not want the championship handed to him this way, but with the admission that rules were not followed, the 21 championship should be void and a declaration that the championship should be shared so neither driver loses out.

  6. He should be sacked it was Lewis to win we all no that he was rob the same way that Michael Schumacher done on diamond Hill they go like the British winging o will let’s see if red bull can bull shit this year I have Watch Formula One for years and seen nothing like it
