Toto Wolff and Suzie Wolff have landed in trouble after having one of the worst ends to the season for Mercedes but it seems like there is something much worse coming for them as they tackle yet another bunch of allegations about the duo sharing confidential information among themselves.
Although Toto Wolff has had one of the worst seasons in his Formula 1 career, it seems that the team principal has finally had his last straw pulled as he tries to pull Mercedes out of the pit that it has fallen into, there is another barrier they need to cross.
Suzie Wolff calls out the FIA after recent allegations
Suzie Wolff has been a Managing Director of F1 Academy since it was founded in 2023 and replaced the iconic W-series. However, Wolff has faced a lot as a woman in Formula 1. There is no doubt that women do not have unequal opportunities in motorsports and have struggled to not only make their name but also achieve a higher position in the Motorsport business.
Suzie Wolff is one of the only women who have made it far into the sport and has now become a managing director for F1 Academy and also directly reports and works with the Formula 1 CEO, Stefano Domenicali. Although a big position for a woman in Formula 1, it seems that things turned for the worse when Suzie Wolff and Toto Wolff, her husband, who have conducted professionally, had serious allegations against them.

Recently, a few allegations were made by the FIA and they soon stated that they would be investigating Toto Wolff and Suzie Wolff for sharing confidential information. Nonetheless, this did not sit well with the managing director who took to Instagram to state how she felt about the situation.
She said, “I am deeply insulted but sadly I’m surprised by the public allegations that have been made the evening.”
Her statement mentioned that the allegations were not only disheartening but also overshadowed her work and passion for F1 Academy which she has worked on since the very beginning. She finished her statement by saying that she rejected all the allegations made against her.
Susie Wolff accuses FIA of being misogynistic
Suzie Wolff has been one of the known personalities in Formula 1 not only for her husband Toto Wolff but also for being one of the many women who have paved the path for women in Motorsports. However, the recent allegations about the managing director and her billionaire husband took the world by storm.
Nonetheless, this did not stop Suzie Wolff from calling out the governing body over the recent comments and the ongoing research on her and Toto Wolff. She said, “It is disheartening that my integrity is being called into question in such a manner, especially when it seems to be rooted in intimidatory and misogynistic behavior.”

Without missing a beat, Wolff called out the FIA by mentioning their biased opinions, especially towards women in motorsports and the untimely bias towards less and less diversity in F1. She has been the only one to fight for a way for women after being the last female driver in Formula 1 in 2014.
