    The long time chief of Formula 1 has passed at the age of 81. A chequered and risquee career. Mosely was a privacy advocate.

    RIP, he did a lot of good for the sport even if he's descended from fascist stock.

    In the greater scheme of things, he did quite a lot for the sport and road safety in general. If you have the time, his book is a great read - it goes into him dealing with his ancestry and how Motorsport helped a lot and also the NOTW phone hacking scandal and his court case.

    He was a ridiculously interesting guy

    My favorite bit of his book was that he brought Burnie out to Rally Portugal to convince him to take over the world rally championship.

    They rocked up to the first stage and Burnie got out got mud on his suede shoes and got back into the car and went home.

    Pitty as the WRC is more to the normal person on the street than F1 is.

    Max should have taken the little hobbit to the heart of the Kielder Forest for the RAC Rally in the depths of winter and left him there for a handy 6 hours.WRC had no interest to the hobbit as it doesn't attract the cash he craved!
