Domenicali: No one can judge F1's morality

Stefano Domenicali has dismissed claims that Formula 1 has put commercial success over morality ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Despite a missile attack on an oil facility just seven miles away from the Jeddah street circuit during Friday's opening practice, the second race of the season is set to go ahead as planned, while the decision to hold a race in Saudi Arabia at all has also been questioned after 81 men were executed in the country in one day a fortnight ago.

However, the Formula 1 boss argued that decisions are made with a focus on making a positive impact around the globe.

"I don't think that is a right consideration," he told Sky Sports. "No one can judge our morality, to be honest. It is a matter of putting in place all the things that have to be considered.

Where is the line? That is the question. Our position, and it will always be, is that we believe that what we're doing will have a very positive impact in all the political situations for the best of our life and at all levels.

This will always be the consideration we will take for our future in the sport, all over the world."
