After being removed from the position of Formula 1 race director, and then leaving the FIA, Michael Masi’s new motorsport position has been confirmed.
Michael Masi, the man whose disregard for the rules and regulations which govern the use of the Safety Car have unjustly prevented Lewis Hamilton from winning his eighth Formula 1 championship, is set to return to motorsport.
Due to his controversial decisions at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the Australian was removed from his position of race director, and has later decided to leave the FIA altogether.
Recently it has been reported that Masi is set to return to motorsport as the new Chairman of the Supercars Commission in Australia.
Speedcafe.com then reported that Masi was surprised by these reports and said they were “only rumours”.

However, it has now been confirmed that the Australian has indeed been named the new Chairman of the Supercars Commission in Australia.
“I view this role as continuing the amazing work already done by [outgoing chairman] Neil [Crompton] and the Commission to lead Supercars into a brand new era with the introduction of the Gen3 Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang,” Masi said.
“I’m very proud to have been appointed to this role and look forward to working with the key stakeholders in the sport to ensure the future is an exciting one for our teams, partners, sponsors and most importantly the fans,” he concluded.
Masi will be present in official capacity at next weekend’s ITM Auckland SuperSprint.
