I still think he is a scapegoat and did exactly as he was told, hopefully now he has gone he will spill the beans

I wonder if they have paid him off

Looks like a pay off to me... Still, at least he is gone, pretty much cements Max's title as being false.

...assuming when he was employed by the FIA to ensure F1 races were run withing the FIA's rules he wasn't told to follow the FIA's rules.

The rightful winner will never be 2021 WDC 'officially', but anyone with at least a cursory understanding of racing knows the truth. There will forever be some who are okay with the debacle because it gave the WDC* to 'their' driver, but that's a report on their own standards of integrity. And not a good one.

Predictable outcome. There's no way the FIA could seriously put him anywhere in any kind of official capacity.

Lots of mistakes and the massive clusterfk in Abu Dhabi, following Charlie was always going to be a tough ask.

I think the FIA are going to struggle to bring the teams/drivers back on side, the changes they made seem to have created more issues.

Good riddance. A discrete veil appears to be being drawn over matters.

Agreed, and probably so does Vettel.

What’s Vettel got to do with it?

Explain how he is a scapegoat? Are you saying the FIA told him to "fix" the AD race for Max to win? He made the decision to go back on his original direction about the safety car restart after being asked directly by Red Bull to do so. That doesn't make him a scapegoat. A patsy, yes, but not a scapegoat.

The real question is why he did he feel obligated to respond to the Horner plea for help? scratchchin
