Rome Mohamed Ben Sulayem has only arrived in Formula 1 starting this season, but he seems to have very clear ideas. The new FIA president certainly did not find an easy situation, given the glowing final of the last World Championship – in part – also Michael Massey, but the man has not been outspoken and has made his intentions clear. “I admit that I inherited the financially weak AIF. Because of negligence we find ourselves having €23 million for our operations. However, with the right team and the right plan, we’ll be back in balance in two yearsConfidently declare in an interview with Grand Prix 247.
‘In 5 years I see a healthier F1’
“Furthermore, the reviewers’ statements indicate that the FIA is outdated in terms of thinking. In such a dynamic sport, this is unacceptable. You have to stay informed – Bin Sulayem added – I’m not satisfied with certain things at the moment, but in five years I see a much healthier F1. Fortunately, success is increasing and I think the pandemic is partly to blame. People want to come back to life after being confined to their homes for a long time due to the virus. Moreover, a lot of this is due to the attractiveness of the United States“.
