FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem has called a meeting to discuss Formula 1 “sporting standards”, which will see stakeholders get together on the Monday after the Italian Grand Prix.
Ben Sulayem has called the summit after holding discussions with “a number of Formula 1 drivers”, according to the FIA, with the aim of shaping the future direction of the sport.
Although the summit was organised before the Italian GP, it’s thought that the end of the race, which saw it finish in an anti-climatic manner behind a Safety Car, will be discussed, amongst other topics including track limits and stewarding.
“FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem is convening a meeting with race officials and Formula 1 Team Managers on the Monday following the 2022 FIA Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix to discuss a range of sporting matters,” a note from the FIA confirmed on Sunday.
“It follows a round of separate meetings held in Monza between the FIA President and a number of Formula 1 drivers.
“It is the first meeting of this type since 2013 and is part of the President’s ongoing mission to improve the standards of the sport, bringing together drivers, teams, stewards, officials in a collaborative way.
“Additionally, the FIA continues to invest in initiatives such as the Remote Operations Centre to support trackside operations and its advanced data technology capability. Examples of ROC activities will be shared at the meeting. The ROC provides an additional resource for the FIA to thoroughly replay and review aspects of the Competition and the decisions made in order to refine and improve procedures for the future. It does not have any regulatory power and cannot be used to reassess or alter past decisions.
“This meeting will form part of a series of consultations that will continue to shape the future direction of the sport under the guidance of the FIA President.”
