The new FIA president is Mohammed Ben Sulayem and one of his first tasks will be to decide if Lewis Hamilton should be penalised for not going to the FIA Prize Giving in Paris. He has driven a Formula 1 car himself too when he did a drag race with a Ford GT40 back in 2009. But things didn’t go as planned as shown in the footage below.

He has also been active as a navigator during a rally race which turned out to be hilarious. Footage of this is shown in the video below.
