The two major German manufacturers in F1, BMW And Mercedes-Benz has released a statement asking the FIA for a clarification of the situation Max Mosley is in. Mosley himself, current president of the FIA, has stated earlier he regrets the scandal but does not intend to step down.
"The content of the publications is disgraceful. As a company, we strongly distance ourselves from it. This incident concerns Max Mosley both personally and as President of the FIA, the global umbrella organisation for motoring clubs. Its consequences therefore extend far beyond the motor sport industry. We await a response from the relevant FIA bodies."Joint statement from BMW and Mercedes-Benz
