<p>In response to a contentious investigation into her behavior from the previous year, Susie Wolff, the head of Formula One’s academy program for prospective female drivers, has filed a lawsuit against the FIA, the organization that oversees racing.</p>

<p>Wolff and her husband, Toto Wolff, the head of the Mercedes Formula 1 team, were the focus of an inquiry on allegations of a potential conflict of interest.</p>
<p>The investigation began in December, when it was reported in a magazine article that other team leaders were worried that Toto Wolff was gaining access to material that his wife had shared.</p>
<p>But two days after declaring that its compliance section was looking into the case, the FIA called off its inquiry.</p>
<p>Mercedes and Formula 1 both expressed their dissatisfaction with the FIA’s handling of the situation and vehemently denied the allegations.</p>
<p>The other nine Formula One teams immediately released similarly worded comments stating that they were “pleased and proud to support F1 Academy and its managing director” and that they had not complained to the FIA over the Wolffs’ connection.</p>
<p>At the time, Susie Wolff called the claims “intimidating and misogynistic” in a social media post.</p>
<p>On Wednesday, the ex-Williams development driver acknowledged that she had filed a criminal complaint against the FBI.</p>
<p>Susie Wolff said on X, “It is true that I personally filed a criminal complaint in the French courts on March 4th, concerning the statements the FIA made about me last December.”</p>
<p>“Transparency and responsibility regarding the actions of the FIA and its employees in this case remain lacking.</p>
<p>“I believe that now more than ever, it is critical to speak up, expose inappropriate behavior, and ensure that those responsible are held accountable. Silence does not release one from accountability, despite what some people may believe.</p>
