Auto president Max Mosley has escalated the "sick Nazi orgy" row





FIA president Max Mosley has escalated the "sick Nazi orgy" row threatening to engulf Formula One by alluding to the links between BMW and Mercedes and Adolf Hitler's regime in a response to criticism from carmakers.

Mosley, 67, who has come under fire following revelations in the News of the World at the weekend, issued a swift response to earlier statements this morning from four car manufacturers that refers to the history of the two German companies, "particularly before and during the Second World War".

Forgetting the boundaries: Max Mosley has done the unthinkable and mentioned the War
Mosley, who has already sent a letter to FIA members apologising for any embarrassment caused by the reports, and said he would be taking legal action against the publication, took little time in replying.

He said: "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.
