MICHAEL MASI is fighting to keep his job after his monumental cock-up in the season finale in Abu Dhabi.
The Race Director was accused of bending the rules for TV as Max Verstappen clinched the world crown in controversial circumstances.
Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team have stated they intend to appeal against the Dutchman's victory.
Masi, who took over when former Race Director Charlie Whiting sadly died on the eve of the 2019 Australian GP, but has been found out of his depth this season.
And the Australian is set to pay with his job when the FIA elects a new President on December 17th.
Jean Todt, the former Ferrari team boss who mentored Michael Schumacher's career, will leave the role he has held since 2009 when he replaced Max Mosley.
