NewsDesk Unplugged | Andretti Formula 1 Bid Rejected

In their latest edition of NewsDesk Unplugged GRANDPRIX247 Editorial duo Paul Velasco & Jad Mallak react to the news that Michael Andretti’s bid with Cadillac to become the eleventh team in Formula 1 will not happen in the near future.

The decision to reject Andretti Global’s Cadillac bid will largely satisfy the current short-sighted ten F1 teams and indeed a victory for them, but is a huge defeat for the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and its president Mohammed Ben Sulayem who rubber-stamped the entry.

The decision by the Stefano Domenicali-led organisation is a black-eye to Ben Sulayem who said that the Andretti-Cadillac bid was an offer that F1 cannot refuse, but they have.

The video has been available on our GRANDPRIX247 YouTube Channel since Thursday for you to watch.
