Mosley Now or Is Told: Quit Be Driven out; SANDSTORM: The Pressure on Max Mosley (Left and Inset) Has Cast a Shadow on Bahrain, Where Robert Kubica Has Secured Pole Position


Byline: Malcolm Folley

MOTOR racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart believes time is running out fastfor Max Mosley, as the pressure grows on the president of Formula One'sgoverning body over the lurid allegations concerning his sex life.

Stewart has been a guest here at the palace of Bahrain's Crown Prince, ShaikhSalman Bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, who made the first telling move against Mosley bytelling him he was not welcome at today's grand prix.

Now Sir Jackie, three times the world champion, believes 67-year-old Mosley islikely to be barred from attending grand prix races around the world. And that,says Stewart, will make the president's position untenable.

Stewart said: 'I think that policy will be picked up, whether it is in Spain,where King Juan Carlos will almost certainly be in attendance at their grandprix in two weeks' time, or in other countries on other continents where theculture, religion or moral standing would not allow Mosley's presence.

'His position is clearly untenable.

He has to step down.' The pressure on Mosley moved closer to breaking pointwhen the powerful American Automobile Association, the largest motoringorganisation in the world affiliated to the FIA, demanded he should quit.

Motoring organisations in Germany, Holland and Israel had called for him toresign 24 hours earlier, following statements of disquiet from four of FormulaOne's most prominent stakeholders, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Toyota and Honda.

Last night Mosley, whose sexual antics were exposed on video film shown acrossthe world, was warned to brace himself for further revelations about hisprivate life, while Stewart insisted that Mosley's refusal to resign wasdamaging Formula One.

Stewart said: 'Mosley is supposed to be the protector of the sport. Frankly, inhis own mind he has to start recognising that this could be affecting an awfullot of other people beyond himself. The statements from Mercedes-Benz, BMW,Toyota and Honda, as well as the country of Bahrain, are quite clear..

'Had he been the head of the International Olympic Committee, or the PGA orLTA, or come to that the CBI, it's hard to imagine he would not have gone bynow. I just don't see how anyone in his position would see himself capable ofsaying: "I'm going to stay". There's a commercial factor to be considered aswell. There are maybe some sponsors who may be sensitive in his presence.'Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone is not deaf to the gathering storm and hewill not place his multi-billion dollar business on the line for the sake ofMosley, even if the FIA president has been a friend for almost 40 years.

'It's not what I think, it's what other people think,' said Ecclestone.

Mosley has abandoned plans to launch an FIA anti-racism campaign in two weeks'time at the Spanish Grand in Barcelona and he has dropped a lawsuit againstformer Formula One driver Martin Brundle, now a respected broadcaster andcolumnist, who Mosley had accused of waging a 'witch-hunt' against him. …
