autosport.com - F1 News: Mosley ready to run for re-election

For all the flak we give Max, he sure has a sense of humour. "F1 needs me"!!

Default Mosley could lose job.

FOTA plans to speed up preparations for next year's breakaway world championship.

According to strong speculation, the timing of the meeting had been planned to occur immediately after Wednesday's World Motor Sport Council summit.

Rumors indicate that a vote could be proposed to oust FIA president Max Mosley - or minimally reduce his power - thus potentially ending the standoff with the rebel teams.

It has emerged that the FOTA bosses met on Sunday morning in the Renault motor home, where it was decided that it would be unanimously declared that no peace deal with Mosley is being sought.

It was directly contradictory to Mosley's parallel suggestion that a deal is close, which according to another rumour was spurred on by pressure from F1 owner CVC's lawyers about the damaging nature of the political chaos.

"We have taken our decision and that's it. There is nothing more to discuss," Renault's Briatore was quoted as saying by the Spanish press.

"The FIA closed the door on us. We decided to do our own championship. There are no negotiations," he said, adding on Sunday that details of the new series will begin to be set in stone "next week".

"I am not interested in what Mosley says. It is not our business any more," said Briatore.

In Italy's Tuttosport, Ferrari president and FOTA chairman Luca di Montezemolo indicated he is looking forward to the breakaway.

"In November 2007, Ferrari and Kimi Raikkonen won the F1 world championship because there were clear rules and it was possible. No longer," said the Italian.

Now at least Force India can look forward to being an active contender for the F1 World Championship (Max Mosley). This is how it will be named.

Ferrari has emailed a link to a poll asking users for their opinion regarding a breakaway series.
Here's the link for people who wish to vote:

Meh, back to the old stuff. Hopefully the teams have fought for Silverstone and a few more classic tracks. Or it's back to the same old crap with lousy Asian/Middle Eastern tracks...

Good the Mad Max is going, he was out of his depth and was really starting to push his luck.

The interesting now is - Who will replace Max? And is Bernie to get the sack next?

What's so good about Silverstone? Don't you remember the mudbath? And what's lousy about the Asian/Middle Eastern tracks? Please explain

Hey Max has said he's resigning before. I don't believe him till there's a new guy in his place. He could easily make the teams sign up for F1 till 2012, get the commercial rights issues sorted and then take credit for it all and run for re-election. And given his contacts among the FIA members of other countries (who stood by him during whoregate) he might stick around. Just another depressing possibility :(

+1. Even I dont believe Mosley would re-stand. Hope that they have in writing from him as no one believes him now.

Silverstone? The fast corners. The audience. The atmosphere. The history. And best of all, good races.

Asian/Middle Eastern tracks? Bunch of straights with a few nonsense characterless corners. No gradient changes. No elevation changes. No character. Empty grandstands. Boring races. Hermann Tilke's infamous designs.

The old classic tracks regularly produce good races. Between Silverstone, Monaco, Spa, Monza, Brazil, Suzuka and Malaysia, China, Abu Dhabi, Turkey, etc, I think I know which group I'd choose.
