In the wake of the questionable application of F1’s security cars and truck reboot guidelines at last year’s F1 season ending, motor racing’s governing body has actually started a comprehensive examination.
But in the middle of some issues that the FIA might attempt to brush under the carpet any errors that were made, Brown thinks that it is necessary for the sport’s trustworthiness that fans are offered a correct response about what truly occurred and why some choices were made.
For while he believes that F1 will rapidly proceed from the Abu Dhabi debate once the brand-new 2022 season starts in Bahrain, he similarly feels there is an onus on the FIA to deal with the Abu Dhabi examination with the severity it is worthy of.
Asked by Motorsport.com about prospective damage that’s been done to F1’s image by the Abu Dhabi fall out, Brown stated: “I believe with all debates in sport, in time, as quickly as the next season begins, the injuries begin to recover.
” But I do believe the FIA requires to come out with a, here’s what took place, here’s how and why we believe it took place. Here’s what was right, here’s what was incorrect, and whatever they’re going to bring out in the report, and after that reveal that they’ve acted to ensure it does not take place once again.”
The FIA has actually blamed the scale of the Abu Dhabi debate on fans and the media ‘misconstruing’ the scenario, however it is clear a huge variety of the sport’s fans stay dissatisfied about the way in which the security automobile guidelines were executed by F1 race director Michael Masi.
While some have actually reached recommending that there was a conspiracy behind Masi’s choices to assist enliven the champion fight, Brown is not encouraged that there was anything particularly wicked.

” I do not believe this was a harmful choice,” he stated. “So for those that may have a view that the sport’s corrupt, and so on. I do not concur with that.
” Do I believe possibly a various choice could have been made? Yes, most likely. I desire to wait to see what the FIA comes out with.
” I believe we’ve all seen in sport previously, referees make choices that individuals disagree with. In some cases they’re right, often they’re incorrect. It gets quite amazing. Then the [new] season begins and it quickly ends up being a thing that, while you never ever forget about, it was a thing of the past.”
Brown likewise thinks that the FIA requires to take a look at its larger running of F1 too, due to the fact that he believes that modifications require to be made on a variety of concerns– and not simply the security automobile guidelines.
” I’m presuming they’re going to come to a conclusion that find out a method of how to much better make choices progressing,” he included. “And that’s what I’m most worried about, due to the fact that the result of Abu Dhabi didn’t affect us. I’m more interested in simply progressing.
“[Look at] motorist charges. Lando [Norris] was an event far from losing his license [last year], which was insane, since I can’t think about at any time Lando drove precariously.
” We composed to the FIA and F1 with 7 races to go and stated Lando is one pressing Perez off a track and not touching them far from losing his license. To me, points on your licence ought to have to do with harmful driving, not racing occurrences. I’m more interested in all that getting cleaned up due to the fact that we were racing and stressed about Lando.
” While everybody I comprehend is laser concentrated on Abu Dhabi, I’m taking a look at the last 2 years and going we’ve got to sort of tidy all this up.”
