After the FIA opened an official investigation into Toto and Susie Wolff’s alleged conflict of interest, Formula 1 came out with a statement denying the allegations.
A recent report from BusinessF1 magazine has suggested that Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff and his wife, F1 Academy Managing Director Susie Wolff are allegedly disclosing confidential information – coming from Formula One Management and the team principals – to each other.
The FIA then announced they have opened an official investigation into the matter, but refrained from naming any names.
Immediately afterwards, Formula 1 came out with a statement of its own, claiming that they have not been notified of any such investigation, before completely denying the allegations.

“We note the public statement made by the FIA this evening that was not shared with us in advance,” Formula 1’s statement read.
“We have complete confidence that the allegations are wrong, and we have robust processes and procedures that ensure the segregation of information and responsibilities in the event of any potential conflict of interest.
“We are confident that no member of our team has made any unauthorised disclosure to a Team Principal and would caution anyone against making imprudent and serious allegations without substance,” the statement concluded.
