Strange... Hartstein was the protege of Sid Watkins. He's been around a long time and has obviously been doing a good job. Who do the FIA intend to replace him with...?

This is really sad, Gary was a great personality and was always approachable. His approach towards medical safety brought out the best in us all. He will be missed from his normal jovial role in Australia and around the world. Dont forget to visit us down under.

From an F1 insider:

"The sad news today is that my mate Gary Hartstein has not had his contract renewed by the FIA for next year. This is a little odd, but I guess it is part of the Frenchification of the FIA that has been going on quietly since Jean Todt took over."
