Like all big money matters, we dont see or hear what goes on behind closed doors (well actually we did for Mr Mosley !).

Its a disgrace, he should go as he has lost all credibility.

I think he gave them all free invitations to his next 'soiree'.

The Germans and the Americans are upset...which on balance is probably a good thing

Re: Mosley Wins Vote Of Confidence

I personally would not have voted him out because of what happened in his own private time.

I would have booted him out because of the near monopolistic control he has over F1 (together with Ecclestone, who's the Devil IMO: just look at ticket prices for the GPs!).

Out the two of them I say!

Re: Mosley Wins Vote Of Confidence

The problem as I see it is how can anyone take him seriously? That must have an adverse affect on his ability to do his job as head of FIA?

This isn't gonna be popular but....

I agree with you Biggie, but I'm not defending his actions.

Mosely, for all his faults has beeen a champion of safety and has revolutionised motorsport. Even Sheikh Mohamed (UAE) recently said "How quickly will we forget what this man has done for motorsport". Perhaps others feel the same way?

Re Bernie, Let no one forget that F1 was on its knees before he took control. Is because of his business skills that we have such world class venues and the sport is so healthy. He was a great manager for Alfa Romeo too and tremendously loyal to his (ex)-drivers and their families.

The ticket prices are high yes, but you get a whole day's entertainment for that. Try buying a ticket for a world class boxing match or football game and tell me it's too expensive then?

Don't forget you can still watch F1 on terrestrial too, for free.

I certainly don't feel that way. Actions that are perceived as being good can not, or should not, be used to offset or negate actions that are perceived as bad. It's like saying it's okay for a deity in the public eye to rob and pillage in private.

It's all about how people with different moral standards perceive Mosley's private actions as something wholey inappropriate for the President of the FIA to partake in.

I think Bernie has his eyes on Mosley's job. My wife heard him speak today before the Montreal GP and didnt like him from the off. I think Mosley should be able to keep his job over what he did. Who cares anyway? Certainly not me, or the majority of fans. Bernie seems more than a little peeved by it though. Hmmm, i wonder why.

Something sensible from Jackie Stewart, for a change:

There needs to be an independent headhunter to find the right people: vice-presidents for industry, mobility and sport, with a board and a non-executive chairman to promote proper governance and transparency."
