Max Mosley, FIA PresidentLate on Tuesday, FIA President Max Mosley has apologised to the FIA members through an official letter, for the embarrassment caused by the sex scandal which involved his private life. The Briton has also clearly expressed the intention to remain committed to his Chairman role. Mosley’s letter was sent to all presidents of the national FIA clubs, all members of the FIA Senate, the World Motor Sport Council and the World Council for Mobility and the Automobile, blaming the allegations about his sexual conduct on a ‘covert’ operation to discredit him.

Max Mosley wrote:

“From information provided to me by an impeccable high-level source close to the UK police and security services, I understand that over the last two weeks or so, a covert investigation of my private life and background has been undertaken by a group specialising in such things, for reasons and clients as yet unknown. I have had similar but less well-sourced information from France.”

“Regrettably you are now familiar with the results of this covert investigation and I am very sorry if this has embarrassed you or the club. Not content with publicising highly personal and private activities, which are, to say the least, embarrassing, a British tabloid newspaper published the story with the claim that there was some sort of Nazi connotation to the matter. This is entirely false.”

“It is against the law in most countries to publish details of a person’s private life without good reason. The publications by The News of the World are a wholly unwarranted invasion of my privacy and I intend to issue legal proceedings against the Newspaper in the UK and other jurisdictions.”

“I shall now devote some time to those responsible for putting this into the public domain but above all I need to repair the damage to my immediate family who are the innocent and unsuspecting victims of this deliberate and calculated personal attack.”

“You can, however be certain that I will not allow any of this to impede my commitment to the work of the FIA.”
