Bernie Ecclestone Defends Mosley In Nazi-Style Orgy Scandal

Though participation in a Nazi-style sex orgy would normally cost someone their job, F1 Chief Bernie Ecclestone is standing by his man, FIA president Max Mosley. The claims of Mosley participating in simulated Nazi-style death camp sex with prostitutes are supported with video, though it appears that's not full confirmation. According to Mr. Ecclestone, "I find it difficult to believe. It's his business but it sounds to me like a set up. Has he in any way damaged F1? No." On the first part, we wonder how one sets someone up for that sort of sex if someone doesn't like that kind of thing. On the second part, that's probably a truer assessment of F1 than Ecclestone intended.

Ecclestone went on to say that he doubted Nazi overtones were included in the video. "Knowing Max it might all be a bit of a joke rather than anything against Jewish people." That must be that famous British humor, eh? Like Ecclestone's own sexist remarks to Danica Patrick? But it's all about the racing. Right?
