We’ve long since learned from the visitor statistics on this website that people are more interested in reading about motor racing (or indeed almost anything) than about Max Mosley – which suits us just fine.
But sometimes he says things that can’t be ignored, and we have to cover them. So here, without elaboration, are a couple of quotes from the man himself today as he spoke to Reuters.
On why it is that some teams always seem to be on the receiving end of penalties and others stay footloose and fancy-free, he said:
“Any suggestion there is a bias for or against any team or driver is completely untrue, absolutely not. I think it’s a reflection, and I’m sorry to say this, of the stupidity of the people who say it.”
And on the approaching end of his tenure in charge of the FIA:
“I have to say there is an awful lot of pressure coming from different parts of the world saying ‘continue’, which is very nice of them, and is very widespread, I have to say that.”
