Russell agrees with Hamilton: 'Nothing should be swept under the carpet'

George Russell agrees with teammate Lewis Hamilton’s opinion that there is a lack of responsibility and transparency within Formula 1. He stated this after Susie Wolff, Toto Wolff’s wife, indicated that she would take the FIA ​​to court. Without facts and figures there is also a lack of trust, according to Russell.

Wolff announced on Wednesday evening that she has filed a criminal complaint against the FIA ​​over the allegations against her at the end of last year. The FIA ​​then announced that it had started an investigation into the Mercedes team boss and his wife due to possible conflicts of interest. Hamilton said at the media day in Australia that he supported her and called for more transparency in the Formula 1 world. ‘There is so much happening in the world of Formula 1 at the moment, we are often in our own bubble. We need more accountability and transparency,” Russell told international media.

“That case in particular, it is no longer in the world of Formula 1. That is in the real world, and there is nothing more to say about that,” he continues. “Lewis said it at the last race, that it is a really important moment for Formula 1, because you just want to know the truth and the transparency within every case that is presented,” says Russell. In Jeddah, Hamilton indicated that there needed to be more openness about Red Bull Racing’s case. “As drivers we have a role within the team to trust the leaders in this sport who have our best interests at heart rather than their own interests,” the Kings Lynn driver said. ‘It comes down to the transparency factor.’

‘Nothing should be swept under the carpet’

Russell, like Hamilton, demands that there be more openness about the things currently going on in the paddock. “If we don’t have the facts and figures, then there is no transparency,” the Mercedes driver continues. ‘Then you always think that something is being hidden. That’s why it’s so important now for the sport to send the right message to everyone who supports Formula 1, watches Formula 1, wants to be involved in Formula 1, that things don’t just get swept under the carpet,” said Russell . The FIA ​​has not yet released a statement regarding the Wolff case.
