“We have something that’s called Accelerate 25, where over the next years we want to hire at least 25 per cent from underrepresented groups in our team.
“Because what it needs is role models, not only the top driver, obviously, who is the biggest role model the sport has, but we need you [the media], talking about the sport, we need to change that room.
“There needs to be a more diverse group of people talking about Formula 1,” Wolff concluded.
