The Times is running a report today (13th September) that Mosley is on the trail of those inside Formula 1 who he believes to have been responsible for making his private sexual preferences public.
In the same article he has also hinted that he may stand for a further term as FIA President given the support he says he is receiving from around the world. (Ecclestone predicted this during the run up to the FIA meeting to determine whether Mosley would remain as President).
Mosley has also denied any bias against McLaren and Hamilton and stated that whilst Alan Donnelly the Chief Steward counted Ferrari as one of his clients this would not influence his decisions.
Sorry, but such statements are hardly creditable. Of course he and his acolytes are biased in much the same as way as Dennis and Stewart are biased against him. We all have biases. However, the President of the FIA and those that represent it must be seen to be able to set their prejudices aside and to many outside observers Mosley clearly cannot.
I accept Mosley's right to take legal action against those who have exposed his private activities but they are just that...private and nothing to do with motor sport. He should therefore have resigned so that he could pursue his private affairs. By remaining he undermines the integrity of the governing body of motorsport and I dread to think what damage his re-election as FIA President will cause.
