Jean TodtFormer Ferrari executive director Jean Todt has confirmed that he will run for the FIA presidency on October 23.

“Following the decision of Max Mosley not to seek a further term of office and his unequivocal support of my candidacy, I have written to the FIA membership to inform them that I wish to stand for the presidency of the FIA,” said the Frenchman in a statement.

“It is my intention to continue and expand the outstanding work of President Mosley,” he added.

Todt also named his leadership team.

“Given the unique structure of the FIA and its twin roles in sport and mobility it takes more than a president to run the organisation and I am delighted to announce my leadership team,” he said.

“For the position of deputy president for mobility I would propose Brian Gibbons; for deputy president for sport I would propose, Graham Stoker and for president of the Senate I would propose Nick Craw.”
