It is being reported that Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff is set to meet with FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem on Friday.

It was reported yesterday by Sky Sports F1 that the FIA has started the promised review of the controversial ending of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Monday, with FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem said to be personally involved in the process.

It was also reported that the process would involve talks with race director Michael Masi, the drivers and the team representatives.

GPFans now reports that Mercedes team boss is set for talks with Ben Sulayem on Friday. Ben Sulayem is said to be meeting with all team principals, so it is as of yet unknown if the meeting is a part of the review process or just a regularly scheduled meeting.

However, there’s no doubt that what happened in Abu Dhabi will be a part of their talks, as Wolff made his feelings perfectly clear on the subject during his post Abu Dhabi press conference.

“[We] expect the commission to not only come up with words but actually follow it with actions and we will hold them accountable for the actions,” the Austrian said at the time.

“We cannot continue in a sport that is meant to be sport followed by entertainment and not the other way around, that we are held ransom by ad hoc decisions in every field, be it technical or sporting.

“And therefore, there needs to be clear measure in place before the start of the season so every driver, every team and the fans understand what is on and what is not on,” concluded Wolff.
