Mosley jumps the shark

In what essentially boils down to a massive hissy fit, FIA president Max Mosley lost any credibility by lowering the FIA-FOTA struggle to a a personal battle between himself and Luca di Montezemolo.

The FIA released selected correspondence between its and Ferrari's lawyers and a long rambling justifications for it's recent actions. This statement, which essentially blames di Montezemolo for the whole current mess, is set on the premise that the whole of Formula1's success is based, in it's entirety, on the FIA's work. Apparently the reason people watch sports is not for the stars or the teams, it's because of the rules. Brilliant!

read it and weep for F1...

And here is the rest of it.


  1. that's the trouble with f1; everyone thinks they're the star. mosely thinks he's the star, bernie thinks he's the star, the drivers think they're the stars, the team principals think they're the stars. heck, sometimes the stewards think they're the stars.

  2. Wow. I don't understand, why cant Mosely turn around and actually see the damage he is doing? Isn't that proof enough that he should be sticking his nose alot less and forcing these rules that neither the fans no teams believe in?

    It makes me so angry that F1 is being plagued by all of this controversy. Grrrr, just let the fans decide, just keep your nose out of it Mosely.

    Thanks to this fool, 2009 will go down in history as another year plagued by controversy.

  3. Ugh, why can't Bernie & Mosley be fired? I used to be hesitant but now I think FOTA going by itself is the way to go, literally.

    Just stupid, stupid, stupid.

    Well lets see if the LMS series takes off now.

  4. Max needs to go, he's batshit crazy.
