RedBull team advisor Helmut Marko recently stirred the Michael Masi trend by saying that Lewis Hamilton’s silence throughout the season was one of the reasons that led to Michael Masi’s firing as race director.
Soymotor has claimed that in Helmut Marko’s view, Lewis Hamilton will never retire, however, his silence throughout the season is his way of expressing the displeasure he feels after the final race of the 2021 Formula1 season, and fervently believe that ultimately led to Masi losing his job in the 2022 season.
Marko has always believed that Lewis will stay as throughout the season he has repeatedly said he will stay in Formula 1.
While talking about it recently he said. “There have been clear signs that Hamilton is not going to stop as there is no movement in the driving market. If Hamilton informed Mercedes that he would take a step back, they would quickly start looking for a replacement. ”
Lewis Hamilton has confessed that he lost faith in Formula1
The Briton following a recent return to sport has accepted that he is disillusioned with the sport but also said that the incident in Abu Dhabi was not the main reason for his departure from the sport. He needs time off to handle the whole season. Whatever the case, Helmut is adamant that Lewis made Masi pay.
“With his silence, he just wanted to express his displeasure with the situation and with the decisions. Some of that behavior later resulted in Masi being fired from his position. I don’t think it’s correct. You have to look at his actions over the years. ”
The RedBull advisor feels that Michael Masi is seen as the sacrificial pawn in the Abu Dhabi saga and strongly disagrees with that. For the 2022 season, Masi is replaced by Eduardo Freitas and Niels Wittich, who will be supported by VAR throughout the season. Helmut believes that if Masi has such tools in place in 2021, he will be able to make clearer decisions.
“If Masi has everything that’s going to happen now, VAR and an advisor, it will be easier for him to decide. ”
It’s all done, Masi is gone, and with Helmut backing Masi up to a good job if he has the tools in the 2021 season, it will be interesting to see how the two new race directors will be in action. like in Formula 1’s 2022 season time.
