Ben Sulayem denies FIA-FOM split rumors


Mohammed bin Sulayem commented on the rumors that in the course of the past season between the FIA ​​and the management of Formula 1 from the FOM there was a serious split. According to the President of the FIA, such assumptions neither then nor now had anything to do with reality.

“I talk to Stefano Domenicali every two days,” Racingnews365 quoted Mohammed bin Sulayem as saying. If I don’t call him, he calls me. We are in constant contact with him and communicate before any meeting or decision-making. I can say that I have a very good professional and personal relationship with FOM.

When I said something in the spring about three additional stages with a sprint, they immediately started talking about a split between the FIA ​​and FOM. It all started back on April 25 at the Formula 1 Commission meeting, when someone suddenly said: “We need to do three more sprints.”

A reasonable suggestion, but I replied that I wanted to discuss this issue with my team first, since they would have to deal with additional workload. However, someone saw a split in my words.

We approved this proposal after we studied everything and discussed with our team. People just don’t understand the pressure that FIA employees and officials are under.

The Formula 1 Commission agreed that we must act in the interests of the future of the sport from a sporting and commercial point of view.

Of course, questions remain, but it’s safe to say that the relationship between the FIA ​​and Formula 1 has never been better than it is now.”
