The Strange Case Of Max Mosley’s Increasing Dementia

The Strange Case Of Max Mosley’s Increasing Dementia

Can anything be worse for F1 than a prolonged drawn out post season legal wrangle over who the current driver’s championship belongs to? Yes, the fact that Max Mosley is no longer concealing his contempt for the F1 teams, engine manufacturer’s, former racing greats, and racing in general. In fact I believe he despises everyone and everything except for himself and Ferrari.

The F1 world has long been contemptuous of Max Mosley’s “leadership” of the FIA, and his blatant support of the Ferrari F1 racing team. Blatant in the sense that he has been overt in supporting decisions that gave Ferrari a leg up in all matters concerning F1 competition.

Now Max has begun to practice the best form of camouflage possible. Hiding his predilections out in the open, under everyone’s nose. He has finally, openly, admitted his overt defense of Ferrari, and his long standing, long time personal friendship with Luca di Montezemolo. No wonder the braying jackass figurehead of Ferrari is getting bolder and bolder in his attacks on all things without a Ferrari brand.

Combine that simple fact with his other recent statements and the direction he is pushing F1, and his sanity has to be called into question.

1. He calls Jackie Stewart a half-wit over Stewart’s disagreement with Mosley’s stripping McLaren of their constructor’s points.
2. He is attempting to impose a ten year freeze on engine development. What is the pinnacle of motor sport with out cutting edge advancements in engineering and efficiency?
3. He has previously expressed his scorn for the car manufacturers in the sport, stating they will leave when it suits them. His engine freeze proposal is no doubt a strong shove in their collective backs to prove his point.
4. His foisting of a common ECU unit on the teams to prevent “cheating” is yet another misguided direction at pushing the sport into a common template series.
5. His roughshod treatment of McLaren, with no sense of objective evaluation of hard facts or punishment commensurate with the alleged crime is universally reviled. Except in Maranello of course.
6. He is prejudging McLaren’s appeal with his statement that even if McLaren are proven correct in the facts of their fuel appeal, it may not change the point’s standings and Kimi’s championship.

Like all things that start out well and end up poorly, it’s time to end Max Mosley’s tenure as head of the FIA. The beginning of his stewardship was greeted with relief and slowly inexorably declined into meddlesome mediocrity and unbridled favoritism. If there is no legal method of removing a sitting FIA president who is no longer serving the interests of motor sport and wants to become bigger than the sport itself, then it’s time for more radical action. Let Max ruin F1 and form that new series the manufacturers have previously threatened. Sooner rather than later the business interests that have sunk 2 billion dollars into the purchase of F1 will seize Max by the scruff of his dictatorial neck and send him into the night, never to be heard from again.

If there's no legal method to remove a sitting FIA president, then maybe it's time for the "business interests that sunk 2 billion" to take a "definitive action" on him.
