Outgoing FIA president Max Mosley has promised to include some explosive revelations in his personal memoirs.

The 69-year-old Briton, who will step down in charge of F1's governing body at the end of next week, told the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag that some top lawyers are likely to be put to work when the book is published.

"When I tell the truth, there are some people that will be very annoyed," he said, hinting that one of the revelations might relate to his beliefs about the origin of the Nazi sex scandal of 2008.

Mosley also said he believes Formula One will not be rid of conflict just because either Jean Todt or Ari Vatanen will soon be FIA president.

"In this atmosphere - dominated by huge amounts of money and egocentric people - the FIA has to remain neutral and keep the balance of power. This is a thankless task of Herculean proportions," he said.
