Stage managed for TV ratings?
Articles pay walled but even without reading it, it just sooooo feels like Bathurst most years. 980 k's of racing nearly always comes down to a safety car n "dramatic " shootout over the last couple of laps with the obligatory hysterical commentators .

Looks like he’s on thin ice. As he should be. Farcical end to the season. Most bungled situation at a critical time with all the chips on the line. Decided to ignore the rules again and become the Grand Emperor.

Michael Masi has been kicked to the kerb after stuffing up at Abu Dhabi last year, will be offered a new position within the FIA.

Sill can't believe that Hamilton and Mercedes didn't appeal, or at least, why they withdrew their appeal.

He was lucky he wasn’t punted altogether. Even the FIA has said it was a stuff up and worse, other stuff ups had occurred the last 2 years as well.

Seems he’s probably said he didn’t have the necessary support so an unfair dismissal claim might have been made if he was removed from the FIA completely.

Scott McLaughlin wins his first Indy race in the USA in just his second year in Indy Racing. Awesome effort. Super competitive series.
