FIA launch INTERNAL REVIEW after Hamilton complaint

The FIA have announced that they are conducting an ‘internal review’ following Lewis Hamilton‘s complaints of a lack of inclusivity in the body’s regulatory framework.

Hamilton has never been shy when it comes to standing up for what he believes in. Whether it’s concerning issues around race, equality, climate change or any other matter – the seven-time world champion has regularly spoken up for those without a voice.

The Mercedes driver has now leant his support to the inclusivity and visibility of female talent in Formula 1.

Lewis Hamilton has taken aim at the FIA over the language used in their regulatory framework

“It doesn’t surprise me,” he said (via RacingNews365) when informed of the current issue. “It is only men in that room and it has been since I’ve been here.

“There has not been enough importance [on changing], probably. Maybe there is another side but definitely not encouraging to hear that.”

Following the comments, the FIA have now announced that they are conducting an internal review of the language in use.

An FIA spokesperson said: “The FIA statutes are prefaced by a statement that terms referring to any person are applicable to both genders, and this topic is currently under internal review.”
