Apr.4 (GMM) Reigning world champion Kimi Raikkonen on Friday refused to join in the widespread condemnation of FIA president Max Mosley.
The Ferrari driver was a rare sympathetic voice in the Sakhir paddock, as Mosley's support in the formula one and motoring worlds erodes in the wake of the highly publicised sex scandal involving prostitutes and allegedly Nazi themes.
But Raikkonen, 28, is quoted as saying by the Mirror: "It's his personal life and he can do whatever he wants and it's not really my business or anyone else's to put their noses in."
After the German and Japanese manufacturers in F1 distanced themselves from Mosley, meanwhile, other teams have so far failed to follow suit.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said on Friday "it would be inappropriate for me to comment" in anticipation of the emergency FIA meeting.
Ferrari's Stefano Domenicali added: "For the time being, we will not make any kind of declaration but I think it's a matter of role and responsibility.
"Everyone has his role and beyond that there is responsibility connected to that, and that's it," he said.
