Sacked Formula 1 doctor admits he is furious with FIA
18 December, 2012
Last month, the 57-year-old American revealed on Twitter that the Jean Todt-led FIA had decided not to renew his contract as F1′s chief doctor beyond 2012.
He said at the time: “Not sure about the ‘why’s’ of the decision, but not down to me to know.”
But Harstein’s tone changed radically this week, when he admitted to his almost 8 000 Twitter followers that he is “righteously pissed off” to have lost his job.
“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.
“Understand this: I am not bitter or sad,” Harstein insisted. “I am seriously angry. And that’s bad.
“Not sure how or when, but there’s dark clouds a-gatherin’. This is gonna be a f***ing blast!”
