Shamed F1 boss Mosley should quit
Published at 11:44, Wednesday, 30 April 2008
HOW much longer can scandal-hit Max Mosley continue clinging to power before he finally faces up to the damage he is doing to motor racing?
The sport’s beleaguered boss has come across as arrogant beyond belief after refusing to go quietly following lurid Sunday newspaper allegations about his private life.
He should have done the decent things as soon as he was allegedly caught with his pants down for the good of the sport’s image.
Instead, he has heaped embarrassment on F1 by being barred from attending the Bahrain Grand Prix by the royal family.
The Israeli government also withdrew an invitation to him to visit the country just 24 hours after it was issued. He is a one-man public relations disaster and his position is now untenable.
Not only that, the clamour for him to resign means his continued presence could have devastating commercial consequences for motor racing.
On Sunday, team principals, along with F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone, gathered in a motorhome ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix to sign a letter calling for Mosley to quit.
He now faces a vote of confidence on his future in Paris on June 3. Let’s hope it ends in him being ousted.
