Max Mosley believes Ferrari will lose its court action on Tuesday.

Max Mosley believes Ferrari will lose its court action on Tuesday.

The case, an application for an injunction against the 2010 rules to be heard by a French court, is based on the Italian team's 2005 agreement with the sport's governing body.

Amid the last 'breakaway' threats three years ago, the FIA and Bernie Ecclestone reached a private agreement with Ferrari, offering more commercial income, stable rules, and special 'veto' power regarding major upheavals.

Ferrari claims this agreement has been breached, but Mosley believes that it is the Maranello outfit that did not live up to its end of the bargain: loyalty.

"They were in a position where they had whatever they had under the old 1998 Concorde agreement in return for being loyal," he said.

Mosley believes Ferrari broke the agreement by establishing the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA), of which president Luca di Montezemolo is chairman.

"Essentially, they walked away by forming FOTA. They were always supposed to be loyal to the FIA, work with us and cooperate," said the FIA president.
