Former F1 doctor slams FIA
THE DOCTOR IS IN...ER, OUT: The FIA have selected a new, as yet unamed, F1 doctor for the 2013 F1 season to replace Gary Hartstein (right) who succeeded the late Prof. Sid Watkins (left).
The FIA has selected a successor to ousted Formula 1 doctor Gary Hartstein.
Hartstein, groomed by the late Proffessor Sid Watkins to succeed him in 2005, admitted he was furious the Jean Todt-led FIA had decided not to renew his contract.
Hartstein took to Twitter to voice his frustrations: "I might launch a crusade to get some answers, or get my f***ing job back, or let the world know what's really going on on the medical side of the FIA."
'NAME STILL A SECRET'
Switzerland's Speed Week reports that Hartstein's successor has been selected.
"The name is still a secret," read the report.
Speed Week added that "even a push by the formula one drivers in favour of the Belgian-domiciled American (Hartstein) was apparently fruitless".
