"We have to get competition out of motorsport. People need to be judged by what they are, not what they do."

"So are we all included in the exclusions, or all excluded from the inclusions? Too confusing, where is Masi to clarify?"

"24 hrs is such a long time in the life of Ben Sulayem it would appear.

Mind you, given the longevity of F1 rules these days 24 hrs is probably an excessively long time in FIA circles."

"I think that motor sport is so competitive that "inclusion" and "diversity" are fanciful. I think that with the competitiveness that there is the mantra must be "the best man/woman/cannot decide for the job". Or am I out of touch?
In other words, Roli has it 100% right."
