As Max Mosley clings desperately to power while the FIA waits for the chance to have its say on June 3rd, there are three more Grands Prix to run in the meantime.

And the next one is the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya, at which we are expecting to see the launch of Racing Against Racism. The initiative was Mosley’s response to the racist abuse targeted at Lewis Hamilton in testing at the venue in February (and apparently also at Shanghai during last year’s Grand Prix).

Given the nature of the charges against Mosley, and however strongly he refutes them, it is inconceivable that he would take it upon himself to launch the campaign. So who will? One of these potential candidates? What might it tell us about who the next President of the FIA could be?
