There are indications that the final Formula 1 race of the 2021 season will be debated for a long time. And although Mercedes on Thursday withdrew the idea of ​​an appeal and would not contest the title for Lewis Hamilton in court, representatives of the German team continue to bring charges to the FIA. Toto Wolff even stated that his driver “stealed” the title.

These kinds of comments are fed up with the outgoing president of FIFA, which he expressed on Thursday evening during a party in Paris, where Max Verstappen received the Formula 1 World Championship trophy.

– Are we perfect? number. So, we’ll look again at our decisions at the Abu Dhabi World Grand Prix, said Jean Todt, referring to the decision to set up a commission explaining the events at the end of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Todd made no secret that he didn’t like much of the Mercedes boss’ comments. – Let me give you such an example. The president of a football club from Lyon is banned from entering ten Ligue 1 matches because he spoke badly of referees. “Maybe in the past we’ve allowed too much and left some comments,” said the 75-year-old, quoted by GMM.

There must be an open dialogue between the FIA, the drivers, the teams and the F1 owner. However, our openness should not be directed against us.

However, Toto Wolff and Lewis Hamilton did not appear at the FIA ​​in Paris on Thursday. The team also did not send its car to the French capital, which is typical for this type of celebration, because Mercedes, as the best manufacturer for the 2021 season, had the right to put its mechanism on a specially built stage.

Mercedes is now seeking to press for the resignation of the Formula One racing director. However, Wolff believes Michael Massey will keep his position because “the FIA ​​will not admit his mistakes”.

They will be the accused and the judges in this case. Had it been cancelled, we would have felt helpless as a Mercedes because we were on the last lap of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. But the truth is that any civil court would agree with us, Toto Wolff told British media.
