Susie Wolff pursues legal action against FIA over conflict of interest inquiry

Posted : 21 March 2024

Susie Wolff has initiated legal proceedings against the FIA concerning its contentious investigation into her conduct last year. As the director of the F1 Academy and the spouse of Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff, Susie Wolff's case centers on what she perceives as unjust statements made by the FIA in December.


 Expressing dissatisfaction with the lack of transparency and accountability in the FIA's handling of the matter, Wolff emphasizes the importance of speaking out against improper behavior and ensuring individuals are held accountable.


The FIA's inquiry was prompted by allegations in a magazine suggesting that Susie Wolff's relationship with her husband created a conflict of interest within Formula 1. Despite initiating the inquiry, the FIA abruptly concluded it, asserting satisfaction with F1's existing safeguards against such conflicts.


The manner in which the investigation unfolded raised concerns among senior figures in F1 regarding the judgment of FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem, particularly regarding the handling of confidential information and the decision-making process.


In response to the FIA's actions, Susie Wolff denounced the claims as "intimidatory and misogynistic," expressing her dismay but not surprise at the allegations. Moreover, all nine other F1 teams issued statements refuting any complaints lodged against the Wolffs, further undermining the basis for the inquiry.


The discrepancies in the FIA's approach between the Wolff case and other instances, such as the allegations against Red Bull team principal Christian Horner, have raised questions about the organization's consistency and transparency in handling such matters, prompting scrutiny and calls for accountability.
