President Todt marches on for a third and final term

FIA President Jean Todt has been handed a third and final term at the helm of motorsport’s governing body, leaving the Frenchman in charge until 2021.

Todt’s re-election went unopposed as predicted, which was perhaps all the more pleasing for the 71-year-old.

“It is gratifying to have such universal support,” said Todt.

“I would like to thank all of the member clubs of the FIA for their support.

“I see this as a validation of the direction the FIA has taken under my leadership, and as encouragement to continue the programme we have pursued over the past eight years.”

Todt’s quiet management style at the FIA since 2009 has been in stark contrast to his predecessor, Max Mosley, a man actively involved in the sport.

His tenure over the years, marked mainly by his devotion to road safety, hasn’t been without criticism from the F1 community, with many believing the sport requires a firmer hand.

At the end of the day however, nobody stepped up to the mantle to contest his mandate.

“From time to time there are some who challenge this role,” Todt added,

“And I remind them that motor sport will always need a regulator, it will always need fair play, it will always require ethics, and it will always need an independent referee.”
