The main issue here is that the FiA continues as the governing body of motor sport and remains in control of the big policy issues of F1 like success, cost control, viability, energy efficiency and diversity of teams and manufacturers. I believe that this weeks rumors are just another exercise in weakening the powers of the federation that will quickly be forgotten.
This all sounds like some people are trying to leak internals to the press to further their own agenda. The FiA should be above that and should continue in the role of governing global motor sports.
So you believe that the emails quoted are all false? These prove that it is far more than "rumour". before passing premature judgment on the issue, perhaps you should wait to see what happens at the November meeting of the FIA.
I think that an anonymous email to the FiA members criticizing the Todt administration is not a good thing to happen. Anonymity in a political debate is the sign of someone who isn't prepared to stand by his claims. To attribute this action or campaign to Mosley is certainly premature. There are not even hints that any internal opposition is led by Max Mosley. I am 100% sure that Todt will be still president after the November meeting. If you were familiar with the statues of the FiA you would know that a challenge to the presidency takes at least six weeks and must be made in a form that will immediately become public. So anything that can happen is that certain organizational and budgetary decisions and proposals get attacked.

Pitpass has been active in this issue. Now they report that the accused Mosley connection is unlikely. There is also confirmation that the Italian web site which launched the rumors had falsely reported on expense abuse by Todt during the last presidential campaign.
