Lewis Hamilton takes a dig at F1

Seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton has raised concerns about the lack of transparency and accountability in the sport as it grapples with off-track controversies.

Hamilton’s comments come amid ongoing disputes involving the governing body FIA and Red Bull team principal Christian Horner.

In a statement before the Australian Grand Prix, Hamilton highlighted the importance of transparency for fans, stating, “With the FIA, things happening behind closed doors, there is no accountability and the fans need that.”

He emphasized the need for trust in the sport and expressed his concerns about the current state of affairs.

Hamilton commended F1 Academy director Susie Wolff for taking legal action against the FIA following a controversial conflict of interest inquiry.

He praised Wolff’s courage and leadership, stating that her actions send a powerful message and have the potential to drive positive change, especially for women in the sport.

Regarding FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem, Hamilton made it clear that he has never had confidence in him.

He expressed his support for Wolff’s decision to challenge the FIA’s ethics committee and applauded her for standing up against injustice.
