Eighty-nine to win

The FIA General Assembly gathers today in Paris and it has emerged that there will be a total of 177 votes cast today in the confidence motion for Max Mosley. Nineteen of these votes will be by proxy. This means that 45 clubs of the FIA's 222 members will not vote, either because they are not full members or because they have failed to pay their dues on time.

In order to win the votee, Mosley needs 89 votes.
