Live soccer Paddy Lowe: It`s nice to see Verstappen secure the title this year without any controversy
Former Mercedes technical director Paddy Lowe defended former FIA racing director Michael Masi.
Masi stepped down from his position following the disputed end of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, when Max Verstappen overtook Lewis Hamilton on the final by live football match
lap to become Formula 1 champion.
It`s nice to see Max Verstappen secure the title this year without any controversy. In general, I was very happy with Max`s victory last year as well - in general it was a rather controversial moment, but Formula 1 has always been a sport in which controversial, risky situations arose.
Formula 1 is never fair. I myself have repeatedly found myself both on one side and on the other - sometimes someone is unfairly deprived, and sometimes someone is justly lucky.
This is the nature of Formula 1, this is the interest, the excitement. F-1 is not a sport where everything goes according to plan, but the one who was the best, who analyzed everything better, always wins. That is why we love Formula 1.
I`m sorry this happened to Michael Masi. He was just extreme. I don`t think there was a right or wrong decision in that situation. He did his job, he was a judge, " Lowe said.
