Max MosleyIt has emerged on Wednesday that the embattled FIA President Max Mosley refused a compromise deal that, in exchange for him resigning from his role, would have guaranteed a confidence vote for him in June 3rd’s Extraordinary General Assembly Meeting. In response to Mosley’s refusal, 24 FIA autmobile clubs wrote him a letter requesting, once again, his resignation.

The letter reads as follows:

“The FIA is in a critical situation. Its image, reputation and credibility are being severely eroded. Every additional day that this situation persists, the damage increases. There is no way back.”

“We deeply regret your refusal to accept the proposal by the members of the World Council for Automobile Mobility and Tourism to reach an agreement for you to step down at the General Assembly in the coming month of November.”

“This is a constructive effort to facilitate an orderly transition within the FIA and to find a solution to the present crisis.”

“Instead, your intention to remain until the end of your term in 2009, in spite of the severe damage being inflicted to the FIA, could imply putting personal considerations before the interests of the FIA and its member clubs.”

“We take note of the letter sent by B. Ecclestone to all member clubs, stating his support for the FIA as the sole body governing international motor sport and his willingness to continue working with the FIA, irrespective of the result of the Extraordinary General Assembly on June 3rd.

“We believe that his explanations put in due perspective the state of the relationship between the FIA and the Formula One world, taking away relevance to many of the arguments you make in your letter to justify your continuity. We take note of his point on the importance that the FIA be led by a credible and respected President.”
