Max Mosley

Age: 68
Title: President of the International Automobile Federation (FIA)

PRO: As boss of the world motorsport's governing body since 1993, Mosley has helped turn Formula One, its blue-ribbon championship, into a multibillion-dollar business while pushing for safer, greener cars.

CON: In March, a British tabloid posted secretly-filmed video footage of Mosley involved in what it called a "depraved Nazi-style orgy in a torture dungeon," involving prostitutes "dressed in striped uniforms reminiscent of Auschwitz garb, while girls in Nazi uniforms look on." Mosley admitted to the orgy but denied any Nazi theme and has launched legal action against the tabloid.
