FIA creates Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Advisor position

In a recent statement, FIA President Mohammed ben Sulayem called on Formula 1 drivers to refrain from giving their personal opinions, and to keep the sport at the forefront.

In his comments to GrandPrix247 , he pointed to actions such as those of Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton, prominent defenders of LGTBQI+ and human rights, or those of Lando Norris, who does not hide when talking about mental health. He assured that it did not seem wrong to him, but that he questioned whether the beliefs of each one should be above the sport and that he was not imposing his on other people.

He compared them to former sports stars, such as Niki Lauda and Alain Prost , of whom he claimed that everything they did had to do with driving.

Before creating this new position, ben Sulayem already tried to calm things down a bit about his statements, using social media to communicate his message: “As a racing driver, I have always believed in sport as a catalyst for the progress of society. That is why I am making sustainability, diversity and inclusion my priorities in my presidency.”

The chosen one to occupy the position is Tanya Kutsenko, from Ukraine, and who will be in charge of equality, diversity and inclusion issues in the world federation, specifically in the motorsport department.

Its tasks include developing a new action strategy for the FIA in this area and leading its implementation, both regionally and globally.

Ben Sulayem, in his role as representative of the federation, gave his opinion on the new position: “Equality, diversity and inclusion are important priorities in my term as FIA President. We strive to improve diversity. By having now with a specialized advisor and with experience in these matters, we can continue advancing in the inclusion in motorsport”.

In his previous career as a motorsports official, Kutsenko has held numerous positions and has collaborated with federations on all continents. His previous projects include strategic development and programs to increase revenue and sustainability.
