I really wonder what Charlie Whiting thought of Masi when he was deputy...

I do miss Charlie.

Is it worth doing F1TV? Thoughts from the gallery?

The archive is nice (not quite complete, but plenty of full replays available going back many years). I watched Australia 2007 this morning. We still had the Varsha, Matchett, and Hobbs trio back then, so it was funny listening to James Allen and Martin Brundle in awe of Lewis, trying to temper their enthusiasm. Given how far ahead Kimi was, I doubt many people thought the McLaren boys would be the main title protagonists toward the end of the season.

Sorry, Max. That title will forever be tainted.


Under the VSC, there were five cars between LH and Max. Hamilton had gotten past them by racing past them. Max got past them because Masi followed Horner's direct instructions and let Max past them so that Max "could race."

In the recording, Wheatley says: “Those lapped cars; you don’t need to let them go right the way around and catch up with the back of the pack. You only need to let them go, and then we’ve got a motor race on our hands.”

Masi replies: “Understood.”

Later, after Toto Wolff complained that Masi’s call to only let the unlapped cars between Hamilton and Verstappen move out of the way was “not right”, Masi replied: “Toto, it’s called a motor race, OK?”


Masi is out of his depth but nothing can be done now anyway.
