Fia President Max MosleyThe agreement reached just two days ago in Paris between the FIA and FOTA, seemed to have put an end to the dispute over next year’s regulations. However, it seems not to be the case.

In a letter sent to FOTA chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, FIA President Max Mosley has threatened to keep his ‘future options open‘ following to what he has called ‘deliberate attempts of the FOTA members to mislead the media‘.”

“I was astonished to learn that FOTA has been briefing the press that Mr Michel Boeri (the president of the FIA senate) had taken charge of Formula One, something you know is completely untrue; that I had been forced out of office, also false; and, apparently, that I would have no role in the FIA after October, something which is plain nonsense, if only because of the FIA statutes,” wrote Mosley.

“Given your and FOTA’s deliberate attempt to mislead the media, I now consider my options open,” he continued. “At least until October, I am president of the FIA with the full authority of that office. After that it is the FIA member clubs, not you or Fota, who will decide my future,” he added.
