Formula One chief Mohammed Ben Sulayem faces more backlash after controversial remarks made on his old website resurface in which he suggested he ‘does not like women who think they are smarter than men’

Formula One’s ruler Mohammed Ben Sulayem was under the microscope last night after it emerged that he said he didn’t like ‘women who think they are smarter than men’. The Emirati former rally champion, who took over the governing FIA 13 months ago, was ambushed by remarks he made on his old website, some years ago. Laying out, as the website put it, his likes and dislikes, he is alleged to have said: ‘I don’t like talking about money, nor do I like women who are smarter than men, for they are not in truth.’. Ben Sulayem, who has previously spoken out about encouraging women in the sport, has endured a torrid week.
