The world watched every race with great anticipation, knowing that in the end, there could only be one winner. In this respect, many praised Max Verstappen for his victory, and Lewis Hamilton for his remarkable performance and sportsmanship after the closing event of the season.
The 2021 FIA Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, has prompted a large number of reactions from the F1 community and from motor sport in general, as well as in the public.
The FIA’s primary responsibility at any event is to ensure the safety of everyone involved and the integrity of the sport.
integrity - the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.
The circumstances surrounding the use of the Safety Car following the incident of driver Nicholas Latifi,
Why on earth is it necessary to mention his name? I hope people don't think he has any part to play in the IFA antics. He has already been the target of threats for this. FFS FIA.
and the related communications between the FIA Race Direction team and the Formula 1 teams, have notably generated significant misunderstanding and reactions from Formula 1 teams, drivers and fans,
Note that they leave themselves out of the misunderstanding, those who have been seen to be a significant part of this already this season.
an argument that is currently tarnishing the image of the Championship
AND THE FIA, you see they forgot themselves here, they look like the biggest fools
and the due celebration of the first Drivers' World Championship title won by Max Verstappen and the eighth consecutive Constructors' World Championship title won by Mercedes.
The actions of the race director had no impact on the constructors championship win by Mercedes, to bring this up appears to be drawing a false equivalence that action against the decision hampers both things equally. Poor show.
Following the presentation of a report regarding the sequence of events that took place following the incident on Lap 53 of the Grand Prix and in a constant drive for improvement, the FIA President proposed to the World Motor Sport Council that a detailed analysis and clarification exercise for the future with all relevant parties will now take place.
"after marking our own homework we found it was correct, we promise we did good work and we will mark our own homework again for other people to see. Those other people are definitely relevant, but we wont specify who they are.
This matter will be discussed and addressed with all the teams and drivers to draw any lessons from this situation and clarity to be provided to the participants, media, and fans about the current regulations to preserve the competitive nature of our sport while ensuring the safety of the drivers and officials.
"We will talk about it with people and and then decide where to attribute what we wanted to do already to the statements that are now on record to make it look like we listened." " clarity will be provided, like we already did do after the eifel 2020 GP and then ignored and did something different, you know integrity"
It is not only Formula 1 that may benefit from this analysis, but also more generally all the other FIA circuit championships.
oh how generous of you!
Following that presentation and an extensive discussion, the World Council has decided to unanimously support the President’s proposal.
So the person in charge of the people who marked their own homework agrees that the homework was correct.
The FIA will therefore do its utmost to have this in motion within the Formula 1 governance and will propose to the Formula 1 Commission to give a clear mandate for study and proposal to the Sporting Advisory Committee, with the support of Formula 1 drivers, so that any identified meaningful feedback and conclusions be made before the beginning of the 2022 season.
"we will therefore definitely try to make a thing start by proposing that we do something that is clear (but not clear enough to tell anyone what it is) and make a proposal to do that to some people who can advise but have no authority. We did ascribe statements to drivers though so we can make sure that it looks legit "best rule since waiting for the green light before going, 3 stars: Leclerc".
Luckily all of this making a plan to decide that someone can advise on whether they think their own answer was correct will be done before the new season so we can all rest assured that the matter needs no longer debating and we can all forget about it and stop saying nasty things about the FIA.
The FIA have forgotten that there are 4 things that make people want to listen and take note of what is said.
1. Honesty - Fail
2. Authenticity Fail
3. Integrity - Fail
4. Love - Fail
They are protecting themselves because they feel humiliated and hurt.
The lawyers involved with writing that statement got rid of all the things that drive trust and so they quite rightly wont be believed that they are going to do anything. They need a person to speak (not a statement) about what happened and what they are going to do to make sure a cluster fuck like this doesn't happen again.
Max is a worthy champion, Lewis would have been a worthy champion, the FIA hiding from criticism is not worthy of a lot right now.
