War between Ecclestone and Mosley looming ?

Max Mosley sent the letter to the FIA presidents and that letter was not exaclty Bernie Ecclestone friendly. So it is no surprise that Bernie Ecclestone is not too happy. His response did not take too long to come:

“I sincerely hope that it isn’t a declaration of war because, if that’s what the message should be, then we’ll have to defend ourselves. That is what anyone would do. I don’t believe that’s what Max wanted the letter to say. I don’t want to have a war with Max. I hope he doesn’t want one with me. This whole business is really about what was printed in the News of the World and whether this in any way damaged the FIA clubs or the FIA – that’s all. It’s nothing to do with anything else and I don’t quite know why he’s come out and said these things. I am sorry if the press have reported things which he doesn’t like, but we certainly don’t have any influence over the FIA We have decided we are going to contact all the clubs who Max wrote to, with a reply to the matters raised in his letter.

I think the General Assembly of the FIA was called for one reason only – to decide whether or not they think Max is the right person to be their president. The vote will be on that, not about the Concorde Agreement.”

Quite strong words here … Not really a sign of support from Ecclestone for Mosley’s cause…

Are these two guys seriously contemplating fighting each other or is this just a part of some bigger game ?

In any case, nice touch from the F1 bosses on the eve the Formula 1 showcase race in Monaco.

    I’m all for a fight!

    Place a “squared circle” at Rascasse and let the Hobbit and The Littlest Perv go at it, may the best buffoon win.

    Sir Jackie can be the [somewhat] “impartial” referee.
