Spanish FIA official happy not to have Mosley

Carlos Gracia, the boss of the Real Federacion Espanola de Automoviliso, told the Associated Press that he is "delighted that Max is not here.

"He's damaged FIA a lot with this," he said. "The FIA is an entity that needs to send out an image of credibility. It's not the best moment to do something anti-racism with Max involved. I supported Max in all moments. I think he's done a great job for the sport. But under the circumstances, his attitude and personal life has caused major damage to FIA's image. It's the president's job to give off a certain image."

"I think FIA needs a definite change. Everything needs to be stabilized."
