I don't know why this complete nonsense keeps on persisting . Masi originally said "Lapped cars will not be unlapped" IN ORDER to finish under green. Because this would save a lap of SC, under the rules. Therefore, he could finish the season under green.
Of course FIA/F1 like this myth to keep going, cos it helps stop people asking why he changed it, after 3 mystery minutes. It wasn't to finish under green. We know this because he initially stopped cars from unlapping, in order to save a lap of SC and so, hence, thus, finish under green
You have 2 choices.
1- He acted in good faith and screwed up.
2- He didn't act in good faith and was implicit in choosing the winner of the race & Championship.
MOD EDIT: Removal of fanboy-ism troll bait
I have issues with the idea of him being told to do it. It assumes that there was a way to contact him that wouldn't get broadcast to everyone or that someone wouldn't notice. It would also have taken a conversation, in a very short time, that would have been able to apply a large amount of pressure. I'm sure a "Psst, let Max win!" wouldn't have been enough to make him cheat. At that very critical point in the race, the eyes on him at the track were everywhere. I doudt that it was planned, cause how could they have known that Latifi was gonna crash when he did. I also don't see the upside for Masi for having preplanned this with RBR for example. Prety sure that he was smart enough to know this wouldn't fair well for his F1 future. At any rate, him getting fired, assures that his replacements will act in good faith next time.
