Mohammed Bin Sulayem’s relationships with the FIA has entered a new era as he is chosen as one of the three new Formula1 race stewards. The United Arab Emirates’ automobile club President and FIA vice President was on duty in Turkey last Sunday and will be present at HungaroRing next month as well.
You might remember it, Bin Sulayem’s last encounter with F1 was not very pleasant! During Renault Roadshow in Dubai, he crashed the R26 Formula1 car while racing a Ford GT in drag at Dubai Autodrome. Of course this has nothing to so with his new role, he might be a bit old to handle race cars, but as a manager he is capable of running Formula1 on his own! The man has been involved with motorsport all his life and comes from a family of politicians. He very well can be the next FIA president!
