Former Formula 1 race director Michael Masi has found a new role within motorsport in Australia, having left the FIA earlier this year.

Masi became the focus of attention following the the finale to the 2021 F1 season, where controversial decisions to hasten the Safety Car process impacted the final laps of the season.

Following the controversy, Masi was removed from his role as race director, and changes saw the implementation of two race directors for 2022: Niels Wittich and Eduardo Freitas.

He was initially placed in another role before leaving the FIA earlier this year and returning to his native Australia to become chairman of the SuperCars Commission. Masi had worked in the Australian Supercars prior to his stint in Formula 1.

For 2023, the 44-year-old will take on a new role as director on the board for Karting Australia, alongside his existing Supercars role.
