I have instructed my lawyers to review the situation including the possibility of issuing legal proceedings."

Jean Todt: "It is my intention to continue and expand the outstanding work of President Mosley, who for 16 years has worked tirelessly to strengthen the FIA's major motorsport championships and to position the FIA as the voice of the motoring public, actively promoting safe, clean and affordable mobility for all."
Ari Vatanen: "[Mosley and Todt] are very close friends and worked very closely together when Jean was at Ferrari and Max at the FIA. But that can also turn out to be a handicap. You need a new star, you need an independent person who represents change."
"Team principal Christian Horner said that talks would open soon with Webber, with the hope being that a deal can be put together to keep him alongside Sebastian Vettel in 2010."
