Interviewed in Austria on the pages of Varlberger News, Bayer admitted: “Michael Masi has done a great job, we would not want to lose him, but there is a possibility that there is a new referee.” Going into the details of the role of race director, Bayer added: “Currently he is also safety delegate, and in charge of the circuit: too many things together”.
