Max Mosley dead: Former F1 boss dies aged 81


    Former Formula 1 boss Max Mosley has passed away aged 81.

    Mosley was president of the governing body of motorsport, the FIA, and one of the most significant figures in the world of Formula 1 during the sport’s heyday.

    Mosley’s passing was confirmed by former F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone, who revealed his close relationship with the former FIA chief.

    “It’s like losing family, like losing a brother, Max and I,” Ecclestone said. 

    “He did a lot of good things, not just for motorsport, also the (motor) industry. 

    “He was very good in making sure people built cars that were safe.”

    Despite being a driving force in the world of motorsport, Mosley’s latter years saw his reputation affected by news that saw him involved in a sadomasochistic orgy with five prostitutes.

    That incident, which was originally reported by the News of the World newspaper, prompted Mosley to invest millions of his personal fortune into pushing for stricter controls over press intrusion into the private lives of public figures.

    Mosley was the son of former Hitler sympathiser and fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley.
