Seems Max is confessing here to being the guy in the video but not to the Nazi theme..............

Max Mosley
Der Brief des Fia-Präsidenten im Wortlaut

From information provided to me by an impeccable high-level source close to the UK police and security services, I understand that over the last 2 weeks or so, a covert investigation of my private life and background has been undertaken by a group specialising in such things, for reasons and clients as yet unknown. I have had similar but less well-sourced information from France. Regrettably you are now familiar with the results of this covert investigation and I am very sorry if this has embarrassed you or the club. Not content with publicising highly personal and private activities, which are, to say the least, embarrassing, a British tabloid newspaper published the story with the claim that there was some sort of Nazi connotation to the matter. This is entirely false.

It is against the law in most countries to publish details of a person’s private life without good reason. The publications by The News of the World are a wholly unwarranted invasion of my privacy and I intend to issue legal proceedings against the Newspaper in the UK and other jurisdictions.

I have received a very large number of messages of sympathy and support from those within the FIA and the motor sport and motoring communities generally, suggesting that my private life is not relevant to my work and that I should continue in my role. I am grateful and with your support I intend to follow this advice. I shall now devote some time to those responsible for putting this into the public domain but above all I need to repair the damage to my immediate family who are the innocent and unsuspecting victims of this deliberate and calculated personal attack. You can, however be certain that I will not allow any of this to impede my commitment to the work of the FIA.

Yours sincerely,
Max Mosley
FIA President

I fail to see what is the big deal is here. Granted, it is embarrassing as hell, a few hookers got paid a pile of money (by Mosley, and even more for the video), but nobody got hurt.
By European standards, this will be forgotten soon IMO.

Ron Dennis must have a smile on his face. I wonder how well he knows Rupert Murdoch, hmm?
Ah well, everybody needs a hobby I guess.

Mosley responds to BMW, Mercedes

By Jonathan Noble Thursday, April 3rd 2008, 09:45 GMT


FIA president Max Mosley claims BMW and Mercedes-Benz should have contacted him before issuing their joint statement criticising his behaviour.

The German car manufacturers labelled the allegations about Mosley's private life in the News of the World as 'disgraceful', as F1's competitors ended their silence over the controversy of Thursday.

But Mosley said he was not surprised by BMW and Mercedes-Benz's statement, but suggested that they were criticising him for something which may not be true.

Speaking to Reuters, Mosley said: "Given the history of BMW and Mercedes Benz, particularly before and during the Second World War, I fully understand why they would wish to strongly distance themselves from what they rightly describe as the disgraceful content of these publications.

"Unfortunately, they did not contact me before putting out their statement to ask whether the content was in fact true.

"No doubt the FIA will respond to them in due course as I am about to respond to the newspaper in question."

Mosley has indicated that he is preparing legal action against the News of the World for invasion of privacy over the report in last Sunday's newspaper.

Teams pile pressure on Mosley

Eurosport - Thu, 03 Apr 16:54:00 2008
Leading Formula One car manufacturers have called into question Max Mosley's ability to continue as president of the sport's governing body after a sex scandal.

Mosley to stay away from Bahrain GP
Mosley, who has said he will stay at the helm of the International Automobile Federation, showed no sign of changing his mind, however.

Mercedes, BMW, Honda and Toyota all issued statements critical of Mosley's position after Britain's News of the World Sunday tabloid detailed how he had paid for sex with prostitutes in what was depicted as a Nazi-style orgy.

"Toyota Motorsport does not approve of any behaviour which could be seen to damage Formula One's image, in particular any behaviour which could be understood to be racist or anti-Semitic," the Japanese carmaker said.

"Senior figures within any sport or business, including motorsport, must adhere to high standards of behaviour.

"When all the facts are known, it will be for the FIA to decide whether Mr Mosley has met the moral obligations which come with the position of FIA President."

Mosley, who has blamed a 'covert' operation against him and is taking legal action against the newspaper, apologised to all national FIA clubs and bodies in a letter on Tuesday but said he would not stand down.

He also denied any "Nazi connotation to the matter", as reported by the newspaper.

German manufacturers BMW and Mercedes, who partner McLaren, issued a joint statement before Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix making clear that the scandal was not simply a personal matter.

"The content of the publications is disgraceful," they declared. "As a company, we strongly distance ourselves from it.

"This incident concerns Max Mosley both personally and as president of the FIA, the global umbrella organisation for motoring clubs," they added.

"Its consequences therefore extend far beyond the motor sport industry. We await a response from the relevant FIA bodies."

Mosley said in a statement: "Given the history of BMW and Mercedes Benz, particularly before and during the Second World War, I fully understand why they would wish to strongly distance themselves from what they rightly describe as the disgraceful content of thesepublications," he said.

"Unfortunately, they did not contact me before putting out their statement to ask whether the content was in fact true.

"No doubt the FIA will respond to them in due course as I am about to respond to the newspaper in question."

Honda said senior figures in sport and business had to maintain the highest standards of conduct.

"The Honda Racing F1 Team is extremely disappointed by recent events surrounding Mr Mosley and we are concerned that the reputation of Formula One and all its participants is being damaged," their statement said.

"We request that the FIA gives this matter careful consideration and reaches an immediate decision in the best interests of F1 and Motorsport."

There was no immediate comment from champions Ferrari and Renault.

The German and Japanese car companies were previously united in the Grand Prix Manufacturers' Association (GPMA) which clashed with Mosley repeatedly while threatening to set up a rival series before a deal was reached.

Mosley said on Tuesday that he had received considerable support from within the FIA and motor sport "suggesting that my private life is not relevant to my work and that I should continue in my role.

"I am grateful and with your support I intend to follow this advice."

The 67-year-old, whose late father Oswald was the founder of the pre-war British Union of Fascists, had planned to be present at Sunday's race at Sakhir but is now not attending.

haha very tactfull, he's gonna go out fighting, well clawing and scratching untill someone stamps on the fingernails he's desperately clinging on with. And I'm gonna enjoy every minute. His position is completely untennable, countries like bahrian pay 8 figures for hosting a GP, largely because of it's clean image, and the bahrain royal family have written to max telling him he's not welcome.

It's unofficial- but apparently he's already blamed mclaren as being behind his "set-up". great, now Ron can sue him libel.

Far from being squeaky clean, the Bahrain ruling family is one of the most corrupt in the Gulf region, extorting a cut from every business.

It would be no surprise if Ron Dennis pulled a few strings from behind the scenes, perhaps with a little help from his partner Mansour Ojeh, arms dealer to, and bag man for the Saudis.
He should have a huge grin on his face. $ 100 million are a great motivator

But like every good hypocrite they like to pretend otherwise in public, go to church regularly and maintain the pretence of impeccable standards, and generally surround themselves in what is deemed to reflect well.
