Ferrari to Max Mosley Over Sex Scandal: Quit!

Max Mosley GraphicI saw this news about Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo’s call for Max Mosley to quit as chief of motor racing's world governing body in light of his involvement in a sex scandal. It kind of reminded me about the sex scandals that involved World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz and former state lawmaker Ted Klaudt and all! And I kid you not!

More of the news follows:

Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo said on Wednesday that Max Mosley should quit as chief of motor racing's world governing body over his involvement in a sex scandal.

"I think that he should realize that sometimes it is necessary to say to yourself I have to leave for reasons of credibility," Montezemolo told the ANSA news agency.

Mosley was given a strong vote of confidence to remain as president on Tuesday, gaining 103 votes to 55 against in a secret ballot at an extraordinary meeting of the International Automobile Federation (FIA) general assembly in Paris.

Most of Mosley's support came from smaller clubs - which held equal sway in terms of voting power to the national federations - because of the money they received after FIA last year gave Formula One team McLaren a $100-million fine for possessing sensitive documents belonging to rival Ferrari. The FIA and its members received $60 million of that sum.

The 68-year-old Briton has ignored calls to quit since March when the tabloid News of the World newspaper published details and photographs of his involvement in what was described as a Nazi-style sado-masochistic orgy with prostitutes.

The FIA president, whose father Oswald Mosley was the founder of the pre-World War Two British Union of Fascists, has denied any Nazi connotations to the scandal and is taking legal action against the News of the World for invasion of privacy. Oswald Mosley died in 1980.

Links to YouTube videos on the scandal can be found here and here. What do you think, friends?

Oh man... how many careers have ended because of sex scandals. But then again, credibility is a big issue especially with big companies like Ferrari
