Former Formula One boss Max Mosley has died at the age of 81, according to reports in British media.
Mosley began his career in motor racing as an amateur driver.
He went on to become the president of the Fédération Internationale de l”Automobile (FIA) in 1993 after serving in a number of other roles in motorsport administration, including with Formula One.
He served out three terms leading the FIA, before stepping down in 2009. While Mosley became known for his leadership in the motorsport world, he also went on to become a prominent campaigner for stronger press controls.
The former F1 leader became an outspoken voice for tighter press regulations after stories about his sex life began to appear in both the British media and in the courts.
According to various media outlets, Mosley’s death was confirmed by former Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone.
This is a developing story and it will be updated as more information becomes available.
