It is, but common, there was no way in hell Ari could have won this.
It was like going against him:

Great so now Max Mosley has a seat on the senete and Todt will give the senete more power.

In otherwords Max Mosley hasn't gone anywhere.

Welcome to another decade of politics over racing everyone.

I agree. Nobody becomes great leader by being a puppet for somebody else! Congratulations to Jean Todt and hat´s off for Mr. Vatanen too, for rocking the boat.
Todt will change things but I guess that what we excpected from Mosley in 1991. And it wasn´t bad period for FIA after all!

And people then wonder how and why the world is such a cess-pit and the mess it is in? Greed, corruption and self interest! The FIA and its members had a chance to clean up itself. But its the equivolent of asking Turkeys to vote for Christmas. Too many living comfortably, with their hands in the till, riding the gravey train. When you see outcomes like this, as a species we all should be nuked. Me included. :cry:

Interesting day/weeks ahead.

Will Ari have the balls to press legal opposition to the process?

How long before the sport is again ridiculed in the eyes of the worlds media.?

How long before Flavio's ban is rescinded?

Todt wont change anything and thats exactly why the current corrupt regime supported him so strongly. Do you really think Mosley would support someone who was opposed his thinking?

Unless anyone can substantiate any claims about members posting here being employees of the FIA, kindly refrain from unsubstantiated accusations against posters.

I don't think this is the absolute, unmitigated disaster everyone makes out to be. If it is, we'll know in a few days; if Todt is in and appoints Mosley as F1 Commissioner, then we'll know for sure. But from reading the Autosport article that appeared overnight - the one that analysed both candidates - I think a lot of Todt's policies like the reforms of stewards are the antithesis of Mosley.

Turkeys don't vote for Christmas.

At least our expectations are so low that we can only be pleasantly surprised by the Modt.

How could Todt have ever lost?

He had the full resources of the FIA at his disposal for months if not years.

He had Max ****ing Mosley feathering his nest by with his normal bullyboy tactics.

I really hope Ari takes this to the highest court in France and exposes this corrupt junta for what it really is.

With so many vested interests, this is no surprise at all.

Doesn't make it any less disheartening though. The motorsport dark ages are set to continue :cry:
