Bernie Ecclestone has backed Max Mosley for a fifth consecutive term as president of F1's governing body.

Bernie Ecclestone has backed Max Mosley for a fifth consecutive term as president of F1's governing body.

Last year, the sport's commercial rights chief executive called for 68-year-old Mosley to step down as FIA president amid the sex scandal.

But with Mosley now set to decide in June if he wants to contest another election late this year, Ecclestone left the door open for his long-time friend and colleague to continue their joint F1 reign.

"That's up to Max," Bernie, 78, said in an interview with Auto Bild. "If he stands again, he will undoubtedly win, and I hope he does stay.

"He has done a good job," Ecclestone added.
