Fernando Alonso has admitted he hopes the recent sacking of F1 race director Michael Masi was not down to his handling of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in December.

 

Masi was dismissed from his role last week following an FIA inquiry into

the season finale that saw Lewis Hamilton controversially beaten on the final lap by Max Verstappen.
