She emphasized that it is notable that only one driver has stood out in showing support for female drivers: Lewis Hamilton. When asked by Sky Sports about the commitment of the seven-time champion, who stands out as the driver most committed to promoting diversity in the paddock, Wolff addressed the topic.

“Obviously, we are getting support from Lewis. I mean, it’s a bit sad that it’s always Lewis, always him, who comes forward in person to show his support, showing up here,” commented Susie, who is married to the Mercedes boss , Toto Wolff. “Really… because I believe that at the end of the day, he understands what it’s like to be the only one, so he has a special connection,” he added. “I look forward to greater interaction with the F1 teams next year, as they have the necessary platform and voices. I believe this will be of great value to our mission, as this is not a short-term project. To achieve success , we need to think long term”, concluded Wolff.
