Formula One’s governing body is keeping its distance from sexual allegations in a British tabloid newspaper about its president, Max Mosley.Â This is a matter between Mr. Mosley and the paper in question,” an International Automobile Federation (FIA) spokesman said.Â We understand that Mr. Mosley’s lawyers are now in contact with that newspaper and the FIA has no comment.”
The News of the World reported in a front page story that FIA president Mosley, 67, had taken part in a “sadomasochistic orgy” with five prostitutes that reportedly involved Nazi role-playing.Â According to a story posted by the London-based Times Online on Monday, Mosley and others “re-enacted a concentration camp scene in which he played the role of both guard and inmate.”
Hey, but at least Mosley has some family connections to the authentic Fascists of old…
Mosley is the son of the late Oswald Mosley, founder of the pre-war British Union of Fascists. Mosley is married with two sons. He has been president of the FIA since 1993.
Methinks Mosley would do well to hire one of Bill Clinton’s Monica-era attorneys.
