Mosley refuses to resign over scandal

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Max Mosley has issued a statement about the infamous News of the World allegations, two days after the claims were made by the newspaper.

Mosley claimed he has been the target of, “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.”

He added he will not resign from his position as President of the FIA:

I have received a very large number of messages of sympathy and support from those within the FIA and the motor sport and motoring communities generally, suggesting that my private life is not relevant to my work and that I should continue in my role. I am grateful and with your support I intend to follow this advice.
