Tragically Max, after being denounced by BMW and Mercedes in a joint statement released Thursday effectively calling for Max’s ousting as President, told Reuters that he was upset they did not contact him before issuing the statement. He then says:
Given the history of BMW and Mercedes Benz, particularly before and during the Second World War
, I fully understand why they would wish to strongly distance themselves from what they rightly describe as the disgraceful content of these publications.
“Unfortunately, they did not contact me before putting out their statement to ask whether the content was in fact true.
This is nonsensical and completely out of line for the President of the FIA! Max has not apologized for his actions, he has apologized that people were offended by them. He has not taken responsibility and now has insulted two of the largest participants in the sport the FIA governs. The last I checked, BMW and Mercedes were not in a room with hookers playing Nazi sex games and to implicate them as being involved int he Nazi war mach8ine is just reprehensible. The FIA should immediately dismiss Max and move to replace him for the continuity of the sport.
