F1 | Rosberg: FIA needs to “tighten up” to avoid future discussions regarding rules

Although it most likely be the Abu Dhabi GP, that will be recognised for the most controversial FIA decisions during the 2021 season, this year has been no stranger to them. With many races such as the Brazilian and Saudi Arabian one and the decisions related directly to the championship fight, they definitely did not leave a good aftertaste. Because of this, with Todt stepping down and being replaced by Mohammed Ben Sulayem, the new FIA president, Nico Rosberg believes it is a time for those controversies to be buried in the past. 

As Rosberg said in an interview with Sky Sports: “Big respect to Jean [Todt, former FIA president] for his career of course, but now with a new person [bin Sulayem] there’s an opportunity really, because the sport needs to make progress,

“And it starts even with all the overtaking, the wheel-to-wheel action, because let’s not forget also in the [Abu Dhabi] race that in the beginning of the race Max Verstappen passed Lewis and then kind of pushed him off a little bit and Lewis stayed flat out, cutting the corner, and then came out in front again.

“Even that, all of us experts were like, ‘Lewis should probably let Max by here’, and yet they didn’t ask him to.

“The FIA needs to tighten all that up so that we don’t have all these discussions. It would be better for the sport if it was much easier to understand.

“Also in wheel-to-wheel racing; who is now right and wrong, what needs to be done. A quick decision is made, and we go on.

“We need to get rid of all these discussions, that’s important.”
