Questions are being asked after the Daily Telegraph reported that former F1 race director Michael Masi had to sign a non-disclosure agreement regarding the controversial 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

In a recent exclusive interview with former F1 race director Michael Masi, Australia’s Daily Telegraph reported that the FIA asked Masi to sign a non-disclosure agreement which prevents him from discussing the controversial finish of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

As is already well known, in the final moments of the race, Masi broke the rules which govern the use of the Safety Car, and basically gifted Max Verstappen the race win and the 2021 title.

Afterwards the Australian was removed from the position of race director, and the FIA’s report on the incident concluded that he had made a “human error”.

Since the report that Masi signed an NDA came out, many have been questioning what it is that the FIA doesn’t want him to talk about.

UK television personality Nick Knowles mentioned the NDA in a response to a tweet talking about the Abu Dhabi controversy.

“And then the [FIA] covered it with an NDA with Masi,” Knowles wrote.

“I wonder if [Sky Sports F1] will ask [FIA president Mohammen Ben Sulayem] why Masi was asked to sign an NDA in his new era of openness?” he concluded.
