Paris--Max Mosley, presedent of the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile, has given an interview in which he sets out his position over the Indianapolis Grand Prix. The interview is published on the FIA website. At the end of the interview, Mosley says, "The tyre companies have no difficulty making tyres last. The difficult bit is making a fast tyre last.Â There is always a compromise between speed and reliability.Â There have been one or two cases this season of too much speed and not enough reliability.Â Indianapolis was the most recent and worst example."
The FIA also published correspondence between its own officials and representatives of Michelin in the days leading up to the race.
