FIA president Max Mosley has been awarded the prestigious Legion d'Honneur, France's highest award, for the contribution he has made to motorsport and road safety.

Mosley was given the award by French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy and French Sports Minister Jean-Francois Lamour at a ceremony in the French Foreign Ministry at the Quai d'Orsay in Paris on Tuesday night.

As well as being accompanied by some close friends and family, Mosley was joined at the presentation by Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone, former driver Gerhard Berger, team bosses Jean Todt and Dietrich Mateschitz, Citroen motorsport boss Guy Frequelin, plus former team principals Tony Purnell and Eddie Jordan.

Mosley's award follows former Grand Prix driver Jean Alesi being handed a Legion d'Honneur for his motorsport efforts.
