This time he detonates the bomb there Bbc: another scandal hits the Formula 1which is now being talked about more by power games than for the (absent) show on the track. The Emirati Mohammed Ben Sulayempresident of the FIA ​​(the international federation of motor sports) is under investigation on charges of having interfered on the result of a grand prix of Formula 1specifically the Saudi Arabian GP 2023. The Bbc in fact he reveals that he has read a confidential report, written by the Italian Paolo Basariresponsible for the compliance of the documents on the track, in which it is written that Ben Sulayem intervened to have a revoked Fernando Alonso a 10 second penalty imposed by the stewards: following that decision, the Spanish driver of Aston Martin he climbed onto the Grand Prix podium, displacing the Mercedes of George Russell.

According to the article by Andrew BensonF1’s first signature for BbcBen Sulayem would call on the phone directly Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, FIA vice-president for the Middle East and North Africa region, present in Saudi Arabia for the race, lobbying to have Alonso’s penalty revoked. There is a little yellow behind the translation of the report: the Italian Basarri in fact wrote that Ben Sulayem “pretended that the stewards canceled their decision to inflict” the penalty on the Spaniard. This would be the literal translation, but Basarri used the term “pretended“, which in English means “to pretend”, while in Italian it means “claim“. According to Bbcthat passage of the report is to be understood as follows: the president from the FIA he demanded/requested that the stewards’ decision be cancelled.

The fact is that it went exactly like this: that 10-second penalty went to Alonso it was removed. The Aston Martin driver had already received a 5-second penalty during the Grand Prix, which he had served during his pit stop. On that occasion, however, a mechanic had touched the car. Applying the letter to the letter regulationwhich prohibits work on the car while a penalty was being served, the stewards had decided to sanction Alonso with another 10 second penalty. Then the about facejustified by the fact that the rule was not sufficiently clear and lent itself to interpretations different. In fact, after that GP, thearticle 54 of the regulation has been revised.
