Sky Sports’ Ted Kravitz says “nobody can move on until the FIA actually explain the decisions, the rationale and the intent behind them in Abu Dhabi”.
The FIA announced it has started its review of the controversial ending of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Some media outlets have reported that Lewis Hamilton’s future in Formula 1 depends on the outcome of the investigation.
While commenting on the situation Sky Sports F1’s Ted Kravitz has said that Mercedes withdrew their appeal of the Abu Dhabi decisions because they felt they were “not going to get justice – which would be Hamilton being the 2021 world champion”.
“Instead they’re left with the FIA’s offer of an investigative commission which will look at how and why Masi came to his decisions in Abu Dhabi, and the wider issue of FIA governance throughout the season,” he continued.

“Mercedes feel that 2021 has been a pattern of some pretty questionable governance decisions. It extends to drivers standards as well.
“They want to put in place some new rules about how we go racing, whether some strong-arm driving standards are going to be enforced and regulated, that we’re not going to have all the nonsense that we had last year.
“They also want the fact that no team principal will be able to talk and influence the Race Director during the race.
“It’s really something that needs to happen quite quickly. Nobody can move on until the FIA actually explain the decisions, the rationale and the intent behind them in Abu Dhabi,” Kravitz concluded.
