His start (five days after the scandal final in Abu Dhabi) was unfortunate. Sulayem was never able to clarify the “Masi case” to the satisfaction of the GP makers. But everyone knew: Verstappen’s world title was not legal.
Sulayem has now interfered in Saudi Arabia’s 20 billion offer to Formula 1 (Blick reported). With rather stupid tweets: “The Saudis should use their common sense, think of the good of the sport. And present a sustainable plan and not just a lot of money.”
The GP owners are raging with Liberty Media (since 2017) and managing director Domenicali. Sure, in 2000 the then FIA President Max Mosley assigned the rights to use the term “Formula 1” for 100 years (!).
The clever GP zampano Bernie Ecclestone (93) smiled and put 300 million on the table. An own goal by the FIA, which since then has only been allowed to take care of safety and rules.
