In terms of the season-opening race in Australia, where Whiting’s shock departure on the eve of the weekend prompted a late reshuffle, Michael Masi will undoubtedly probably be the race manager in Bahrain.
That role will be performed by Christian Bryll, the F1 event logistics manager.
Colin Haywoodthe race control systems manager, will behave as Masi’s deputy race manager.
He was also a prominent figure away from race weekends, working on most of their FIA’s commissions.
The FIA is expected to split Whiting’s assorted responsibilities amongst multiple personnel.
