Max Mosley continues as FIA president

Published: 03 June 2008

Max Mosley will continue as FIA president after member clubs today voted overwhelmingly in his favour. At the meeting in Paris, Mosley received 103 votes supporting a ‘motion of confidence in the FIA President’.

A further 55 votes were cast in opposition to the motion, while there were also seven abstentions and four invalid votes in the secret ballot cast by FIA member clubs. The result of the vote means Max Mosley will keep his position as FIA president until October 2009, when his current term comes to an end. Mosley has hinted he will not seek re-election.

Mosley now faces a battle to regain his credibility, but it will also be interesting to see how his critics react. After allegations about Mosley’s private life surfaced in a British Sunday newspaper, BMW and Mercedes issued a joint statement that said: ‘The content of the publications is disgraceful. As a company, we strongly distance ourselves from it.’
