Any chance you could fuck off and do it somewhere else?
You know it’s the car that made him win all those championships. Next year the cars should all be better matched and he will whinge like he did in the Vettel era.

Tell the other manufacturers to make better cars
They couldn’t or didn’t want to or were just behind the whole hybrid era.
Ferrari even resorted to cheating.
Renault as a works team are useless.
Honda redeemed themselves after copying Mercedes engine layout.
Mercedes had all the secrets, whether they got it from Schumacher, or stollen Ferrari documents or Lewis who had the stolen 700 pages of secrets. They were always ahead of the game.
Only potential problem is that Brawn created these new spec cars and well Mercedes was his team so there’s still a bit of possible nepotism lingering in the 2022 season.

All this tells me is F1is a better F1 when Mercedes wins when they dont it's not?
I don't see that at all. Read par 4 again. Mercedes is asking the FIA and F1 for clarity on rules AND the way it will be applied going forward. Nothing wrong with that in my books

The rules have only been an issue because it has not been in their favour once it goes against them they want clarity and rule changes.

All this is showing how salty Merc is.

Has Michael Masi Been Sacked?​


Michael Masi was not named in the current FIA General Organisation Chart, which was released this month following the appointment of newly-elected FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem. Since officiating at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in December 2021, Masi has faced a barrage of criticism over his last-lap decision that helped Red Bull's Max Verstappen defeat Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton in the driver's championship race.

Masi's decision to speed up the safety car procedure to complete the final lap at the Yas Marina circuit proved to be a blessing in disguise for Verstappen, who was able to overtake Hamilton courtesy of his fresh tyres. Hamilton was the leading driver for the last several laps before Verstappen overtook the Mercedes driver. The decision helped Verstappen win his maiden F1 World Championship title.

Why is Masi not listed in the FIA Organisation Chart?​

If media reports are to be believed, Masi's dismissal as 'head of single-seaters sporting matters' comes just days after it was suggested that Mercedes and the FIA had agreed to a deal, which will see the German car manufacturer drop its intention to challenge the outcome of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on condition that Masi is sacked.

The BBC reported earlier this month that the FIA has agreed to dismiss Masi from his job in exchange for Mercedes dropping its plans to challenge the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix result at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Meanwhile, Nikolas Tombazis, FIA's head of single-seater technical matters, was also missing from the General Organisation Chart of the governing body. It is believed that Tombazis has also been sacked from his position over the row at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in December.
