Michael Masi will continue as Formula 1’s race director for the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend.
The FIA has not yet confirmed its plans for a long-term replacement for Whiting, for whom race director duties was one of several rules he performed.
A change to the DRS zones at the Bahrain International Circuit had also been announced for this weekend’s race. A third activation zone has been added to the 5.4-kilometre track.
Drivers will now be able to activate DRS at the exits of turns three, 10 and 15 – the final corner on the track. Each of the zones will have its own detection point.
