Outraged at the insulting tone of Mosley's letter to a member of the Jordan royal family, it is said that most of the Arabic motoring officialdom now stridently back Vatanen.
The Ugandan motor racing official Jack Wavamunno, meanwhile, claims he was "pressurised" through the means of "threats" by Todt supporters to drop his support for Vatanen.

VA-TA-NEN! VA-TA-NEN! This will be the most epic election I will ever witness (that is a bad choice of words because I will probably not actually 'witness' it), even more titanic in proportion than the 2008 U.S. Presidential elections.
Oh, and throwing in my seventeen cents with regard to the topic, of course some scandal or another is bound to happen much earlier than this, but since I'm too lazy to think of any, I'll just give you this little completely improbable scenario that I'd thought of earlier: After the Malaysian team Meritus makes it onto the grid in 2016 only to DNPQ for the first (or two) races, they magically qualify a sensational 20th and 21st (or thereabouts) in their home Malaysian Grand Prix, then proceed to win the race 1-2 after they don't make any pit stops, because somehow they forgot those are still mandatory (because you have to use both sets of tires), and are then immediately after disqualified and heavily fined for this (and probably for having illegal parts on their car too, otherwise they couldn't 'magically' qualify, of course). They are banned for the next two Grands Prix, and do not make it onto the grid ever again, before pulling out at the end of the season due to a combination of lack of funds, lack of results, and shame.
