Ben Sulayem warns drivers not to use F1 for ‘private personal agenda’

Formula One drivers will need prior written permission from the sport’s governing body to make “political, religious and personal statements” from next season following an update of the International Sporting Code in December. Unless the FIA grants approval in writing, drivers who make such statements will now be in breach of the rules. You can use sport for peace reasons … but one thing we don’t want is to have the FIA as a platform for private personal agenda,” Ben Sulayem said. Everybody has this and they are most welcome to go through the process of the FIA, to go through that.”. Ben Sulayem rejected the notion that the FIA was shutting down drivers, saying he wanted to “improve and clean up” the sport. “I have my own personal things, OK, but it doesn’t mean I will use the FIA to do it,” said Ben Sulayem.
