Jun.2 (GMM) Max Mosley insists his decision about whether to contest another FIA presidency election will not be affected by the current battle with Formula One teams.

The Briton, 69, is due to make his decision later this month about standing or not for a fifth consecutive term when the elections are due in October.

He told an interview with Germany's Deutsche Presse Agentur that "just about everyone in the FIA" is urging him to stay.

"Some of the Formula One teams are not, but that doesn't matter, they don't have a vote.

"So it's a difficult decision," Mosley said.

Mosley is currently embroiled in arguably his biggest F1 challenge since he emerged in the early 90s from a power struggle with control of the FIA's now defunct sporting arm, FISA.

But he says the outcome of this battle will have little bearing on whether or not he retires.

"Not an awful lot, because it will certainly be resolved one way or the other before any election, and hopefully before I have to decide," said Mosley.
