, FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem hospitalized after fall ahead of FIA prize giving in Baku

FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem suffered a fall "several days ago" and required medical care prior to the FIA prize giving ceremony in Baku. The incident comes at a time when the organization is under scrutiny for reversing its decision to investigate conflict of interest allegations against Toto and Susie Wolff.

Fall and concussion

According to an FIA spokesperson, Ben Sulayem fell and suffered a concussion. He was promptly taken to the hospital, where he received treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.

Investigation into conflict of interest claims

The FIA recently launched an investigation into conflict of interest claims against Susie and Toto Wolff. The Mercedes boss and his wife, Susie, faced intense scrutiny after allegations that Susie was sharing confidential information from her position as Managing Director of the F1 Academy. However, the claims were quickly disproven after rival F1 teams expressed their support for the Wolffs and stated that they had no issue with their roles.

U-turn and closure of the case

Following the display of unity from the F1 teams, the FIA performed a U-turn on their decision to investigate the unsubstantiated claim. The case has since been closed. Despite this, Toto and Susie Wolff are upset about the questioning of their integrity and are demanding an explanation.

He emphasized the need for full transparency regarding the events and reasons behind the investigation. The Wolffs have reserved all legal rights and will address the matter in due course.
