F1 LIVE: Lewis Hamilton lashes out at FIA as Max Verstappen confirms Red Bull future

Lewis Hamilton has hit out at the FIA for a lack of transparency as Susie Wolff confirmed that she has taken legal action against the governing body.

Toto Wolff’s wife filed a criminal complaint alleging reputational damage after she and her husband were subject to an investigation over potential conflict of interests, which was found to be unsubstantiated.

“Firstly, I’m incredibly proud of Susie,” Hamilton said when asked about the situation. “She’s so brave. She stands for such great values. She’s such a leader.

“In a world where often people are silenced, for her to be standing up sends such a great message. I love that she’s taking it out of this world, filing it from outside, because there is a real lack of accountability here within this sport, within the FIA.

“Things that are happening behind closed doors, there is no transparency, there is clearly no accountability. How can you trust the sport and what is happening here if you didn’t have that?

“Hopefully, this stand that she’s taken now will create change, have a positive impact, and especially for women.

“We’re living in the time where the message is ‘If you file a complaint, you’ll be fired.’ That is a terrible narrative to be projecting to the world.

“So, especially when we’re talking about inclusivity here in the sport, we need to make sure that we’re staying true to the core values here.”
