The FIA has confirmed that Michael Masi will take over the role of Formula 1's race director for the Australian Grand Prix, following the death of Charlie Whiting.

Masi has previous experience working as race director of the Australian Supercars championship, which supports the F1 event this weekend.

The 2019 season opener will mark the first time since 1996 that a new race director will be in place, as Whiting held the role from 1997 onwards.

An FIA statement read: "Appendix 1, Part B of the FIA Formula One Sporting Regulations for this Event (“Sporting Regulations”), specifies that Mr Charlie Whiting shall be the Race Director, the Safety Delegate and the Permanent Starter.

In accordance with Article 11.9.3b of the FIA International Sporting Code, the Sporting Regulations shall hereby be amended to reflect Mr Michael Masi as the Race Director, Safety Delegate and Permanent Starter for this Event."
