"We need Masi in the VAR studio for Villa vs Mcfc" - F1 Twitter reacts to Martin Tyler dissing at Michael Masi for another Premier League VAR controversy

F1 twitter delighted as Premier League Commentator Martin Tyler takes a dig at ex-FIA race director Michael Masi.

The 2021 Abu Dhabi GP turned out to be a controversial season finale which caught both FIA and the F1 race director Michael Masi under fire. The controversial safety car decision made at that time has now turned into a joke.

English Premier League Martin Tyler recently used the Abu Dhabi incident as a reference to explain the current situation in the EPL title fight between Liverpool and Manchester City.

The comment he made about F1 came during a match between Liverpool and Southampton. Liverpool needed to win the match to stay in the title fight, even a draw wouldn’t have sufficed.

To sum up the situation, Tyler said, “They want to go into the final day only with a win really. I mean you need to be maybe a Formula 1 race director if it’s a draw to try and conjure a kind result.”

F1 Twitter called the perfectly timed dig by the commentator on F1 and Michael Masi brilliant.
