When Mosley pushed Carlin to seek an F1 entry

OPINION: Our columnist recalls the day Max Mosley came calling with an important question to ask. The nature of the late FIA president's inquiry has resonance today in light of Formula 1 teams’ resistance to new entries

Thursday 23 May marks the third anniversary of the passing of Max Mosley. While the youngsters hopefully reading this – probably some of my recent Formula 4 drivers! – possibly will not know of him, many other people will remember him, but not necessarily solely for good reasons.

Max courted controversy because of his upbringing, his family and his absolute self-belief. He was extremely intelligent, did not suffer fools lightly, and he made that very clear. He would have made a great politician, because he could debate better than anyone. But he chose to use his skills in the motorsport world, and we should be thankful for that.
