This is F1Minute for the 1st April 2008.
Breaking his silence for the first time since hitting the headlines this weekend, Max Mosley has written a letter to the FIA and other governing bodies.
It starts: From information provided to me by an impeccable high-level source close to the UK police and security services, I understand that over the last two weeks or so, a covert investigation of my private life and background has been undertaken by a group specialising in such things, for reasons and clients as yet unknown. I have had similar but less well-sourced information from France.
He goes on to say that he has had plenty of support from various parties, mostly saying that his private life is just that, and shouldn’t affect his work. He intends to stay on as President of the FIA, and also sue the News of the World for violating his privacy.
Bernie Ecclestone had said he didn’t think Max should turn up to the Bahrain Grand Prix, but if Max does intend on staying, it is unlikely he will change his plans.
That’s all for today, please join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
