Masi has revealed Wolff was more a victim of increased radio access between the pit walls of the F1 teams and race control now given to broadcasters.
“To be fair, I very rarely hear from Toto on the race control radio," said Masi.
"However, one of the innovations the FIA has worked together with F1 – and actually came together after an F1 Commission meeting last year – is so they could hear, as part of the broadcast, the communications between the race control and the teams, which is a regular part of what we do operationally.
“From that perspective, Saturday was the first time it started so the F1 Group, through their broadcast, have been doing some trials in the background of seeing what that is like.
"All the teams were advised and the weekend was the first time it had gone live to air.”
