Lewis Hamilton backs Susie Wolff amidst FIA legal action

Posted : 21 March 2024

Lewis Hamilton criticized the lack of accountability in motorsport and expressed his support for Susie Wolff, who has initiated legal action against the FIA. Wolff, the director of Formula One's academy series for female drivers, recently filed a criminal complaint in French courts regarding an inquiry into her conduct last year, which stemmed from allegations of a conflict of interest involving her and her husband, Mercedes Formula One team principal Toto Wolff.


The investigation, prompted by concerns raised by other team principals over potential advantages gained by Toto Wolff through information shared by his wife, was terminated abruptly by the FIA just two days after it was announced.


Both Formula One and Mercedes vehemently denied the accusations and criticized the handling of the matter by the FIA, expressing frustration with the lack of transparency and accountability within the sport's governing body.


Hamilton praised Wolff for her courage in taking a stand against perceived injustices, highlighting her leadership and commitment to upholding values. He lamented the prevailing lack of accountability in motorsport and the FIA, emphasizing the need for transparency and proper procedures.


Wolff herself emphasized the importance of holding individuals and organizations accountable for their actions, rejecting silence as a means of absolving responsibility. Hamilton echoed her sentiments, expressing hope that her actions would catalyze positive change and address issues of inclusivity in a male-dominated sport.
