Whiting in talks to join F1 team

Charlie Whiting may be looking for another job in F1.

That F1’s long-serving top FIA race director and starter is in talks with a couple of teams could fire a major controversy, according to Germany’s Auto Bild.

The report said Briton Whiting, 64, held talks with various teams last weekend at Spa.

Whiting’s F1 career dates all the way back to when he was a mechanic and engineer at Bernie Ecclestone’s Brabham team. He became the FIA’s technical delegate in 1988.

Auto Bild claims he was made race director in 1997, after Ron Dennis threatened to pull McLaren out of F1 if Whiting accepted Flavio Briatore’s offer to join Benetton.
