FIA defends president amid escalating F1 conflict

The governing FIA has defended its president amid an escalating political climate in Formula 1. In recent days, weeks and months, it has become ever clearer that a rift is forming between the teams and Liberty Media on one side, and the newly Mohammed Ben Sulayem-led FIA. “The remarks in this archived website from 2001 do not reflect the FIA president’s beliefs,” the spokesperson said. It was a central part of his manifesto and actions taken this year and the many years he served as FIA vice president for sport prove this.”. According to Sport1, Liberty Media – having lashed out at Ben Sulayem last week over his opposition to the potential sale of F1 for $20 billion – would prefer that the current FIA president is ousted.
