Toto Wolff and Christian Horner were again frequently on Michael Masi's ears during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday. According to Ross Brawn, this should end in 2022 and team bosses should no longer interfere with race management.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was decided on the very last lap after race control decided to let the drivers race one more lap. The safety car went in one lap earlier than it should have.

No contact anymore with Masi

The connection between the team bosses and Michael Masi was open again this weekend and could be followed by everyone at home. That the team bosses were able to exert so much influence on the race direction is 'unacceptable' according to Brawn. Auto, Motor und Sport.

This season there has been more criticism of the radio traffic between the race control and the team bosses. For example, we had a negotiation between Red Bull and Masi in Saudi Arabia and both team managers were often complaining about decisions that were taken or not. According to Brawn, it is not possible that Wolff and Horner can demand anything from the race director: ''We will stop this contact next season.''
