  1. Max Mosley's predecessor was a fascinating chap called Jean Marie Balestre. Balestre served in the French SS, and whilst alive, was notorious for suing anyone who mentioned it. Thanks to the internet, we can all find the photograph of Balestre performing a Nazi salute in front of a picture of Hitler. Balestre's defence was, that as a member of pre-war extreme right wing movements and an associate of Nazi collaborators, he was doing his bit for the French cause as a double agent. Bizarrely, his association with Nazi collaborators, the people upon whom he allegedly spied, continued post 1945. His sterling war service earned him the Legion d'Honneur in 1968.

    Balestre even had his own minor sex scandal when he was photographed at a Grand Prix with a transvestite prostitute called Lulu.
