, Lewis Hamilton slams FIA at F1 awards ceremony, defends Susie Wolff

Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton criticized the FIA for their handling of a conflict-of-interest investigation involving Mercedes boss Toto Wolff and his wife, Susie. The FIA dropped the case after just two days following backlash from rival F1 teams. Hamilton spoke out against the governing body during the FIA prize giving gala in Baku, accusing them of trying to hinder progress. He also defended Susie Wolff, calling her an incredible female leader and demanding a change in the FIA's leadership.

Hamilton's scathing remarks

Hamilton called the FIA's actions "unacceptable" and criticized their lack of evidence against Susie Wolff. He highlighted the importance of diversity and inclusion in the sport and accused certain individuals within the FIA of trying to hold back progress. Hamilton emphasized the global influence of Formula One and urged the FIA to lead the way in promoting positive change.

Wolff seeks legal explanation

Toto Wolff, who is team principal, CEO, and co-owner of the Mercedes F1 team, announced that he is seeking a legal explanation from the FIA regarding the matter. He expressed the need for full transparency and stated that all legal rights have been reserved. This statement followed Susie Wolff's response on social media, where she expressed her disappointment with the FIA's investigation and vowed to find out who instigated the campaign against her.

Criticism of FIA's event location

Hamilton also criticized the FIA for holding their annual event in Baku, Azerbaijan, which required a five and a half hour flight from London. He questioned the FIA's commitment to sustainability, suggesting that it would have been easier for them to host the event in Paris, where their headquarters are located.
