May 19 (GMM) Sir Jackie Stewart has continued to call for Max Mosley's resignation, rubbishing the embattled FIA president's plea to stay on until next year.
In a leaked letter to FIA members, Mosley wrote last Friday that he should be left to handle "complex negotiations" that are crucial to the future of the sport.However, in the pages of the notorious British tabloid News of the World, former triple world champion Stewart slammed the letter as a "classic decoy" by the trained barrister."Max is not irreplaceable," the Scot said, "so to say he should stay in charge to see things through is ridiculous."If he died tomorrow, the FIA would still carry on. Nobody is irreplaceable," Stewart, who is also 68, added.Meanwhile, following the leak to the media, the governing body has now made the Mosley letter public, but insists it has "no comment" on the reports linking the sex scandal with the British intelligence agency MI5.
