Powerful US Congressman launches F1 investigation over Andretti block

An extremely powerful member of the United States House of Representatives has opened an investigation into Formula 1 and Liberty Media over its block on Andretti entering the championship.

Representative Jim Jordan is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and thus one of the most powerful members of either the House or Senate.

In his role, he has demanded documents pertaining to the discussions from F1's decision to block Andretti, for now, a week after he was one of 12 bipartisan House members to meet with the 1978 world champion in Washington, D.C on Capitol Hill.

Rep. Jordan has addressed his letter to Liberty Media chief Greg Maffei and F1 CEO and president Stefano Domenicali, with a deadline to respond of May 21st.

Liberty is also set to reveal its first-quarter financial results on Wednesday, 8th May.
