Whiting slams job talks with F1 teams

Charlie Whiting has slammed reports suggesting he is looking for another job in F1.

Germany’s Auto Bild claimed last week that the sport’s long-serving race director and starter wants to leave the FIA and is already in talks with a couple of teams.

“That’s preposterous,” the 64-year-old told Auto Motor und Sport. “I don’t know where it (the speculation) has come from.”

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 and the F1 race director in 1997.
