- Michael Masi has revealed the Istanbul Park track surface has been treated to avoid having a ridiculously low grip surface as seen in the 2020 race.

He told Race Fans: “We do regularly, each season, send an update to the teams of any circuit changes for upcoming events, be they barriers, fences, gates, whatever it may be, areas of resurfacing,” he said.

“The surface in Turkey has been effectively water-blasted, that probably would be the best way to put it. [This] is a regular treatment that happens, we’ve seen it regularly used in Singapore as an example where the public roads that are used, they resurface quite regularly because of the movement. So that’s what’s happened there, along with a few other changes.”

"it's definitely going to be crazy to think that I never drove for Ferrari".

"Of course I look at the colour and the red, it's just... it's still the red. I have a couple of Ferraris at home, so I do get to drive a Ferrari, just not the one!

"For everyone that's a dream position to be in. It was just never really fully on the cards for me.

"I'll never know fully exactly why, but I wish them all the best and I'm going to spend the next bit of my time stopping them from winning the championship!"
