Former F1 race director Michael Masi has refused to comment on the rumours that he could become the new boss of the Australian Grand Prix.

After it was announced that Andrew Westacott will step down from his role as boss of the Australian Grand Prix, rumours started swirling around that former F1 race director Michael Masi could step in as a possible replacement.

Masi was removed from his position of F1 race director earlier this year because of controversial decisions he made at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

In the final moments of that race, the Australian disregarded the rules that govern the use of the Safety Car, and prevented Lewis Hamilton from winning his eighth Formula 1 championship.

A few months after being removed from his position, Masi left the FIA altogether.

However, Masi has since returned to motorsport and became the new Chairman of the Supercars Commission in Australia, a member of the South Australian Motorsport Board, and a member of the Board of Directors at Karting Australia.

Speedcafe.com reports they contacted Masi to ask him about his rumoured Australian Grand Prix role, but he refused to give any comments.
