Mark WebberIn an interview with BBC Sport, Red Bull’s Mark Webber has expressed his disappointment on what has been revealed by the British tabloid News of the World regarding FIA President Max Mosley’s private life. The 31-year-old Australian believes also that such huge scandal ‘has brought Formula 1 into disrepute’. “The current scandal has brought the sport into disrepute. Whether we like it or not, all of us in F1 are role models and F1 simply cannot have scandals of this type”, said Webber.

“Whether Max chooses to resign or how the vote will go at the extraordinary general meeting of the FIA on June 3rd is a matter for him and the FIA membership. Hopefully that decision will come on June 3rd. We have got the confidence in the people, they have all the information they need to make the decision that will see if he can continue,” Webber continued.

“It makes it difficult when any of these sort of scandals are involved, when they become public. It will be more challenging for him to do his role.”

“Because F1 is so high profile, we are always very sensitive to not bringing it into disrepute because of the amount of people involved in it,” he added.
