Jul.4 (GMM) Patrick Head, co-owner of the Williams team, says he would rather have the scandal-ridden Max Mosley as FIA president than Jean Todt.
Amid the ruckus about Mosley's caper with five role-playing prostitutes, Todt - the former Ferrari team boss - was slated as the most likely candidate should the FIA need to fill the role.Ultimately, Mosley survived the scandal, apparently to the quiet relief of Head and fellow team stalwart Sir Frank Williams."Our view is that Max, sometimes with our resistance, has done a number of things in recent years which have been good for this company," he told The Independent."It is not in our interests to undermine Max, especially in the light of threats of him being replaced by Jean Todt."Head does not believe Todt, the diminutive Frenchman, is suited to running the governing body of world motoring and racing."We have been to many meetings at which (Todt) has been present representing the interests of Ferrari 100 per cent. He is confrontational, argumentative, and not impartial, everything that the president of the FIA should not be," he charged.
