Masi set for first motorsport role since exit from FIA

Several months on from his last days as F1 Race Director at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Michael Masi looks set to return to motorsport in his home country.

Michael Masi looks set to return to the motorsport world in his first role since leaving the FIA.

Former F1 Race Director Masi was replaced in his position in February following months of in-depth internal investigations over the controversial events of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

It was announced at the time that Masi would be offered a new position within the FIA amid changes at the top level of the sport's race governance, but a statement released in July confirmed that Masi had left the governing body to relocate to Australia.

Now reports suggest that Masi will become the new Chairman of the Supercars Commission in his home country.

This would not be Masi's first time working in the category, as the Australian was previously an administrator in Supercars.

Masi held the role of a deputy race director for Motorsport Australia before joining the FIA as F1 Race Director Charlie Whiting's deputy in 2018. He later became Race Director following Whiting's passing in 2019.
