  • gb

As part of its ongoing mission to uphold integrity in motor sport, the FIA is pleased to announce the launch of a dedicated e-learning platform #RaceAgainstManipulation to raise awareness of the risks of competition-fixing. 


The FIA is taking a proactive approach with the launch of #RaceAgainstManipulation, the latest development of a long-running partnership with Sportradar Integrity Services – the global supplier of sports integrity solutions – that includes monitoring of events with its Fraud Detection System (FDS).
Safeguarding the integrity of motor sport worldwide is of paramount importance,” said FIA President Jean Todt. “No reports of betting manipulation in motor sport have been received to date but we must be vigilant. And the best way to achieve this is through education. #RaceAgainstManipulation will help stakeholders to recognise potential threats, assist them in the reporting of misconduct. It is an essential tool in the fight to maintain sporting integrity and I advise everyone involved in our sport to use it.”
“This user-friendly platform is a milestone for the FIA and the motor sports world as it will help raise awareness of the specific contents of the International Sporting Code on this topic and in particular what competition manipulation means in an informative and entertaining approach. I thank Pierre Ketterer, Head of the FIA Governance, Integrity & Regulatory Affairs Department and the FIA team for their proactive process to this important matter.said the FIA Secretary General for Sport, Peter Bayer.
#RaceAgainstManipulation is targeted at drivers competing in national and international competitions, team personnel, officials, volunteers, event organisers and FIA staff and consultants, as well as the wider motor sport community including national sporting organisation (ASN) staff and consultants, media and fans around the world. 
The first briefing concerning the use and the contents of the e-Learning platform was provided to the Formula 1 drivers on Friday 27 August 2021 at SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium.
This e-learning platform consists of a 30-minute tutorial during which participants learn what constitutes competition manipulation, how to identify the behavior of competition fixers, become informed of their obligations and duty to report, and learn about the serious consequences arising from breaches of regulations. After having completed the tutorial, each participant will receive an FIA certificate.
