FIA president Max Mosley has agreed to deliver the keynote address to open the 2007 Motor Sport Business Forum, which takes place at the Grimaldi Conference and Exhibition Centre in Monaco in early December

Mosley will offer an invaluable insight into the future of the FIA Formula One World Championship, which is set for the introduction of new ecologically-friendly regulations over the next few years.

"I'm pleased to return to the Forum to deliver the keynote address," the president admitted, "Since its inception, the event has provided an important arena for motorsport's commercial community, and I'm happy to play my part in helping them gain an understanding about the future direction of the FIA Formula One World Championship. It is a direction that will infuse the sport with more power and excitement, while eventually helping all car users to conserve energy and improve fuel consumption."

This year's Forum is set to be the most high-profile yet, with virtually every Formula One team and team principal lined up to take an active role in the conference programme. They will be joined by representatives from all other major motorsport championships including the WRC, WTCC, MotoGP and NASCAR. Pau Serracanta, managing director of Dorna Sports, which runs the MotoGP championship, also recently confirmed his participation in the programme.

"I'm delighted to welcome Max Mosley back to our event," Forum founder Simon Berger commented, "The feedback we received from delegates last year, especially sponsors and agencies, was that the FIA president's speech was a major highlight. They felt that the understanding they gained about the governance of Formula One and the direction the sport is going was particularly valuable."
