Toto Wolff watches Massa legal case for parallels with Hamilton’s 2021 title bid

Wolff acknowledged that the current legal case Felipe Massa has brought against Formula One and the FIA might set a precedent that would have a direct influence on Hamilton’s claim to the title. Massa has taken legal action over the “crashgate” affair in 2008, when he lost the title to Hamilton by a single point. Massa’s case is based on the premise that F1 and the FIA knew at the time the incident had been orchestrated but did nothing. In Singapore this weekend, Wolff acknowledged there was a potential parallel to Hamilton’s case. In reference to it deciding the championship and the potential precedent set by Massa’s case, Wolff pointedly noted the FIA had already in effect admitted culpability.
