Mosley: Stewart's comments partisan and ill informed

NEWS STORY
15/10/2007

FIA President Max Mosley has responded to Jackie Stewart's comment to a Scottish newspaper that he should resign, having handled the spy saga badly and brought the sport into disrepute.

Mosley suggests that Stewarts comments are merely a means of attracting media attention at a time when the Scot is launching his autobiography.

"Jackie Stewart's latest comments are as misconceived as those he made prior to the McLaren World Council hearing in September," said Mosley, according to Reuters. "It is not the role of the FIA to court popularity by supporting one party or the other. It is the role of the FIA to ensure that the rules of the sport are respected and that fairness is applied consistently for all competitors.

"The bandying of partisan and ill informed comments in the media may well result in increased book sales for his new autobiography," he added, "but they can do little more than confirm my view that Jackie is in no position to provide useful observations upon issues of motor sport governance."
