Remark of the working day

The FIA’s determination to set up Niels Wittich as F1’s race director for the last 4 races of the period and no extended rotate him with Eduardo Freitas in wake of an investigation into the Japanese Grand Prix led @Crimson-andy to observe a sample by way of the season…

I hadn’t realised that all of the most questionable race route this period (Monaco, Singapore and Japan) experienced arrive at races in which Freitas was at the helm. Possibly a clever determination to substitute him, then.Crimson Andy
