Former F1 driver sir Jackie Stewart has leveled his words at the FIA for allowing the current McLaren Lie-gate event to even happen int eh first place. Jackie, who is always at logger heads with FIA President Max Mosley, says it should never have happened if the FIA had their race control operations in order. GMM reports:
“But he (Charlie Whiting) was apparently unavailable, trying to sort out the Sebastien Vettel problem,” the 69-year-old, referring to the German’s crash with Robert Kubica, told the Scottish newspaper the Herald.
Stewart added: “It seems strange that only one person has the authority to deal with these inquiries which could be result-changing in a multi-million pound sport.
“As it is, we now have a potentially serious state of affairs for McLaren.”
