While motor racing’s governing body is now hoping to finalise a plan for what it really does at the longer duration, Wolff states that F1’s chiefs are getting out of bed to how difficult it will be to cover away everything which Whiting did.
“I think his [Charlie’s] shoes really are hopeless to fill,” said Wolff.
“[This includes] trivialities such as, will be the cameras in dangerous positions. That really is what Ross mentioned to me personally. A bunch of tasks, also I didn’t possess some direction with the race director in the race.
“Surely there’ll be tough decisions to simply take later on, also I believe it’s impossible to displace Charlie. But whoever takes up that job, we must support them”
Even the FIA used the skilled Michael Masi, that was set to function as F2 and F3 race director this season, as Whiting’s stand in at the Australian Grand Prix.
It’s uncertain if he will continue in the job for the brief duration, or so the regulating body will search for somebody else.
FIA president Jean Todt said last weekend which talks could involve F1’s teams about how best to proceed.
“We are going to work very closely with the F1 teams and we have started to presume,” said Todt. “we in Geneva is hoping to see what we have been going to implement for future years “
