(Newser) – When a British tabloid exposed Max Mosley's predilection for rough sex under the headline "F1 Boss Has Sick Nazi Orgy With 5 Hookers," he surprised everyone by going to court—and winning a record $120,000 in damages. Now the head of world motorsport tells the Guardian that the press has to be reined in, and that he'll never say sorry for his taste for sadomasochism.

"They can't talk about morality, they are immoral themselves," the FIA president says of the tabloid editors who unveiled the 45-year sexual double life he kept from his wife and children. Mosley thinks newspaper editors should have to contact people before dishing their dirt, and he’s pushing the European Court of Human Rights to stiffen British privacy laws.
