Why the sudden change in CEO though? Chase Carey looked more like a cool laid back F1 Boss.

For myself I am in no position to comment about Chase Carey, other than we will all miss your moustache. But I am very pleased to see the return of Stefano Domenicali.
The cynic in me wonders if the piranha club are pleased to see this appointment because they think he will be easy to chew up. For myself Stefano reminds me of a university lecturer I had who was nicknamed "the smiling death". A thoroughly nice and pleasant chap, but the merest dressing-down by him was far worse than all the angry bluster others might inflict.
To continue the fish-shaped metaphor. In business there are "sharks" and "killer whales". The former are always unpleasant to work with and they lack any real "bite" while the latter are excellent colleagues capable of extreme destruction with only a swish of their tail.
Such a shame that after nearly 40 years I am finally done with F1. It's the inappropriate use of F1 as platform for a warped and poisonous ideology (Lewis) that has finally turned me off. But I'll wait to fully vent my spleen on that subject for when Sky puts up another propaganda piece.
Citizen Kane

F1 is already massively biased towards Ferrari so to have the top 3 positions being held by former Ferrari employees will only lead to more biased behaviour

Chase Carey brought to F1 A Dumb Model Waving Chequered Flag 4 laps before end of Canadian GP then we had Chase Careys Genius idea to make every GP into the Super Bowl and have a Crazy pre Race event at US GP in which all Drivers ran onto grid infront of Cheerleaders and a meet and Greet Drivers getting of a Boat at Australian GP weekend in which all drivers hated doing

Sell F1 to Americans and what do you expect , Americans Can't even save Nascar so why let them loose on a European Sport like F1

Then like Meghan before him he figured out his way wasn't working and as with Meghan he Quits
This is the best new that's happened to F1 in a long time!
Marnix Siekmans
Marnix Siekmans:
Liberty made a very good decision in my opinion. Stefano knows a whole lot about the sporting side and retaining chase as non executive is good for the entertainment side of the sport.
Occasional Enthusiast Rob Jones
Occasional Enthusiast Rob Jones:
Good European enthusiast, however will he be bias to ferrari? Now who will replace Jon tod in the fia which is going down the pan due to devicive corrosive politics. Is he strong enough to pull f1 out of the mier? Popular is not a qualification
Great appointment. Always hated Ferrari but Stefano was always very approachable and he seemed a genuine guy. I wish him the best of luck in his new role.
Marty McFLY 1985
Marty McFLY 1985:
So basically F1 is now ran totally by ex Ferrari Top Men we have Jean Todt FIA who's Ex Ferrari, Ross Brawn Ex Ferrari and now Stefano .

So Jean Todt Head of FIA
Ross Brawn main F1 Adviser
Stefano Running F1

So thats a Ex Ferrari Box Set then Jean Todt running governing body FIA, Stefano running F1 Entire Show , And Ross Brawn go to adviser

And we still don't know what exactly happened with Ferrari Power Unit and FIA investigation from last season

Guess we'll never ever know now

This is outrageous, who chose yet another Ferrari lover to head F1 to help them cheat and make secret agreements about it? Nice guy but bad choice.
they bitched because Toto may do the job but it's OK for Ferrari ?, are you kidding me talk about bias, Ferrari are not the B all and End all of motorsport put Martin Brundle in charge.

The camera work sucks! The cars sound terrible and now you are ramming Marxisim down our throats. I'm watching MotoGP more and more and less F1
Personally, this Ferrari takeover of F1 and its governance is a concern. I have nothing against previous Ferrari staff but how are we ever going to get rig off the $100m itch/hand out to Ferrari when all we have are ex-Ferrari personnel running the sport?!

Hoping Stefano gets F1 back to a European flavour instead of the Americanized version it has become.
Second thought maybe with an Iti running it perhaps he will bring back Pit Babes which the Americans are to anal to allow.
Yes. F1 belongs in European hands!

Ciaron Smith
Ciaron Smith:
F1 is a European sport, through-and-through.
It must not be "Americanized" and an American is simply not suitable to run it.
Excellent choice to bring in an Italian.
Alfonso Bessand
Alfonso Bessand:
Unfortunately Stefano's link with Ferrari does not help to think he will be impartial, to be nice, good or any other personal quality, really is not a guarantee what will be his behavior in this new roll. Remember Drivers Championship stolen from HILL, and the last one is the agreement with Ferrari not to publish what was wrong with their engine, hope I am mistaken but past history teaches that FERRARI can't be trust, don't think Stefano will fight them, seems we will have to wait....and hope for the best for the sport
Jean Arenas

Hopefully, the new President will distance and keep F1 from the Marxist shenanigans of Black Lives Matter.

Domenicali is not even able to speak proper English. the decision of taking him back is another sign of the not meritocracy of F1 sport environment but instead
