He was the sweating fat mastermind of the Singapore gate so he would feel guilty its because he an untrust worthy slime ball is why he thinks he is innocent

Reading the Telegraph article Mosley seems to be saying that a ban would have been worse for McLaren than the $100 million fine because it would have stopped them racing for the rest of 2007 and the whole of 2008.

A ban would have ended the 2007 championship battle. That would have been a disaster for the fans. The $100 million seems to have been the right answer because we had two great championships, the second of which was won by Lewis for McLaren.

The fine clearly did little real damage to McLaren. A ban might have put their F1 team out of business.

Interestingly, Mosley does not say if he still thinks a ban would have been better.

The Witch is DEAD !

The Witch is DEAD !


Ha Ha, reduced to making increasingly desperate poisonous rants at compliant newspapers who print the bile unquestioningly... but The Witch is DEAD !

No longer in power and facing a future of total irrelevance, Mad Mad Max desperately lashes out at his old enemies while the surprisingly good new FIA President goes around doing good things for F1, not bad or evil.

Bye Bye Mad Mad Max, go away, please never bother us again, everybody really hates your sick, peverted old guts.

Anyone who thinks Mosley will disappear is dreaming. Just read today's Daily Telegraph - he and Todt have been planning the transfer for five years. They are obviously close friends even if JT is his own man.

Spot on.

The damage Mosley did to the sport in the later years of his reign of terror was unforgivable.

A thoroughly unpleasant throw back from a darker time in history.

Much as I dislike Jean Toad he hasn't heaped the shame that mosley has on the sport.....yet

these comments from mosley show just how he was able to influence a kangaroo court. these are just his beliefs, i hope that similsr prominence will be given to briatores disclosures, if and when he makes them.

Taz et al,

Much though I dislike Toad, strongly believe he is a Moseley buddy, championed Ari and forecast Doom and Gloom, I see clear signs he is his own man and will be doing things differently.

Just the news about Stewards being changed and Ex Drivers getting in the mix looks like a great sign, unbelievable really, Toad risks upsetting Max, hell, just the positive vibes and publicity this simple change has brought about a massive new optimism.

Maybe I am being far too optimistic, maybe Toads new qualified Stewards will just be a corrupt bunch of French buddies who make Mad Mad Max's reign look innocent and benign, but I think not.

I did not, and do not like Toad, but I am hoping..
