I’m not sure how I feel about being broadly in agreement with Max Mosley, any more than I’m sure Max would have held the same opinion while he was still the president of the FIA.

Taking time out from appealing against his recent failure to have privacy laws changed by the European Court of Human Rights, he’s offered The Telegraph his thoughts on the Bahrain Grand Prix:

“Having carried out these horrific acts, the Bahrain government wants to clean up its image. That’s where the Grand Prix comes in. By running the race they hope to show the world the troubles were just a small, temporary difficulty and everything is now back to normal.

“By agreeing to race there, Formula One becomes complicit in what has happened. It becomes one of the Bahrain government’s instruments of repression. The decision to hold the race is a mistake which will not be forgotten and, if not reversed, will eventually cost Formula One dear.”
