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.
