The FIA has confirmed that they are conducting an internal review of the language used in their regulatory framework, after Lewis Hamilton’s public complaint.

In recent years Lewis Hamilton has been very vocal about inclusion in Formula 1, and he has been a big proponent of helping more women find their way into motorsport.

When he was told that the FIA’s regulatory framework still refers to drivers as ‘he’, Lewis said this does not surprise him at all.

“It doesn’t surprise me,” Lewis said.

“It is only men in that room and it has been since I’ve been here. There has not been enough importance [put on changing this], probably.

“Maybe there is another side [to it], but definitely not encouraging to hear that.”

Since Lewis made these comments, the FIA announced they are conducting an internal review of the language they use in their documents.

“The FIA statutes are prefaced by a statement that terms referring to any person are applicable to both genders, and this topic is currently under internal review,” an FIA spokesperson said.
