Todt hits back at drivers complaining over rules

Todt hits back at drivers complaining over rules – FIA president Jean Todt has hit back at the drivers who are saying they want more of a say about the rules in Formula One.

Sebastian Vettel said in Barcelona that the 2019 rule changes designed to aid overtaking are, “comical”.

“Not to say that we know everything, but we know how the cars feel,” said the Ferrari driver. “But we’re not really asked.”

“Our opinions should at least be heard,” said Daniel Ricciardo

Four-time world champion Lewis Hamilton said: “We should make the decisions.”

Todt has lashed out, saying there are already structures in place so that they can have a say.

“It’s up to them,” Todt is quoted as saying by the German newsmagazine Focus.

“Anyone who wants to speak with me, whether it’s a top driver or otherwise, can do it within 48 hours,” he added.

He also expressed his frustration that the drivers have chosen to air their views publicly at the Spanish Grand Prix, which has now forced him to respond.

“I don’t want to now read the headline ‘Todt contradicts Vettel’, but that’s what you’ll do,” said Todt.
