Max Goes a Little Mad

Sometimes, it seems like the center of the Formula 1 universe should be somewhere in Texas. Like the Lone Star State, things in F1 seem to happen on a larger than life scale. NASCAR rule breaking earns the violator a few lost points and a small fine. Rule breaking in F1 loses you a championship and will cost you a fine approximately the same size as the Gross National Product of Tunisia. A regular organization president would have an embarrassing sex scandal. But F1 boss Max Mosley, well, added another offense:

The News of the World carried a report on Sunday claiming Mosley had taken part in a "nazi-style orgy in a torture dungeon".

The allegations have led to leading figures in motorsport calling for Mosley to stand down.
Nazi-style orgy? I don't even want to know what that means, exactly, but it certainly makes for a Texas-sized scandal!
