dodged the definitive bullet earlier today in Paris where the FIA
president walked away with a win after a secret ballot vote of confidence took place. Of the 169 votes, 103 expressed confidence in the embattled president, who is dealing with the fallout from a sex tape
released by the News of the World
that showed Mosely being beaten by five prostitutes. 55 ballots were cast against the motion, while 11 were invalid, according to the FIA. Mosley made it clear that he would not pursue reelection
after his term ends later this year, something that is sure to make a number of interest groups, not to mention his old friend Bernie Eccelstone
, particularly happy.
