Looks Like F1 Is Whole Again: FOTA & FIA Reach Agreement, Max Mosely Is Out

Just when many were starting to think that F1 was going to repeat the history of American open wheel racing it was announced today that FOTA and the FIA reached an agreement and there will be no “breakaway series” for 2010.  However it seems that part of the deal is that FIA President Max Mosely will not stand for re-election at the end of the year and might step down immediately from his position.  The details are a bit foggy but you can read reports on this at Autoblog and at SPEEDTV to try and make sense of it all.

In the end this all turned out to be pretty much what I suspected, a firm power play by FOTA to leverage their value and get their voices heard.  Mission accomplished…
