FIA president accused of sexism, bullying

But now, the Daily Telegraph reports that Rao authored a letter accusing Ben Sulayem of “numerous instances” not only of sexist behaviour but also bullying. The newspaper also said “dozens” of FIA officials who back her claim, including one who saw the president “shouting” at Rao. One source said: “I’ve had team principals call me who said ‘You should have seen how he treated Shaila-Ann’ and it was in front of other people. When asked to comment, an FIA spokesperson said: “Mutual privacy terms have been agreed as is commonplace in business. Neither party has made a reference to the FIA Ethics Committee.”.
