(Newser) – Formula One Racing chief Max Mosley has denied that the videotaped sado-masochistic orgy he participated in with five prostitutes was Nazi-themed. Mosley claims he spoke German during the orgy simply because several of the call-girls were German, not as a part of Nazi role playing, as the News of the World had reported. Mosley is taking legal action against the paper for the story, reports the Times of London.

While Mosley's denials focused on the theme, the orgy itself is still an issue to racing insiders, many of whom think the man with one of the most powerful jobs in motor sports should resign. “How can you have a leader of industry, which is what Formula One is, who is a pervert?” a Formula One veteran asked the Times.
