Formula One’s ruler Mohammed Ben Sulayem was under the microscope last night after it emerged that he said he didn’t like ‘women who think they are smarter than men’.
The Emirati former rally champion, who took over the governing FIA 13 months ago, was ambushed by remarks he made on his old website, mohammedbensulayem.com some years ago.
