Max Mosley, racing boss who took on UK tabloids, dies at 81

Max Mosley, who shook off the stigma of his family’s links to fascism to become international motorsport’s top administrator and later made a stand as a privacy campaigner in response to tabloid stories about his sex life, has died. Friend Bernie Ecclestone, the former F1 chief executive, said Monday that Mosley died the previous evening. As president of motorsport’s governing body, the FIA, from 1993-2009, the suave, Oxford University-educated Briton oversaw the stunning global spread of Formula One, with new races in Asia and the Middle East.
