The FIA as the organisation that rules the world of motorsports continues its restructuration aiming to the future since new President Mohammed Ben-Sulayem was elected in December 2021.

Now, an official statement has now confirmed that former Secretary General for Sport since 2017 and now ex Executive Director for Formula 1 since late 2021, Peter Bayer, has left his role at the FIA.

“The FIA warmly thanks him for the achievements he has contributed to the development of motor sport over the last five years. In particular, he has supervised, with the entire Sport Division, the building of the single-seater pyramid from Karting to F1, the creation of the new World Rally-Raid Championship, as well as improving safety and sustainability in all disciplines. The FIA wishes him all the best for the future.”

Bayer also had a crucial role in the investigation held on the events that happened in Abu Dhabi at the end of 2021. Investigations concluded with the firing of Michael Masi as F1’s Race Director.

The statement also announces that the person replacing Bayer in his former role inside the FIA will be Shaila-Ann Rao on an "interim basis".

She previously “held the position of FIA legal director from mid-2016 to end of 2018, before spending the past three and a half years with Mercedes Grand Prix Limited as consecutively general counsel and then special advisor to their CEO and team principal Toto Wolff.”
