Max Mosley

Motorsport boss Max Mosley says changes being made to the World Rally championship are needed to safeguard its future. "We are trying very hard to get the costs down in some sensible region," the president of motorsport's governing body the FIA told the WRC website. "If we don't we are going to lose a lot of the manufacturers and other teams from the rally championship. Next year we will probably only have four manufacturers whereas we had six this year. It is quite clear that unless we do something to eliminate a lot of the costs we will lose even more."
