Todt stands to replace Mosley
Friday 17 July 2009
Jean Todt, the former team principal of Ferrari, formally announced his intention yesterday to stand for the role of FIA president which will be vacated by his close friend Max Mosley in October.
However, rival Ari Vatanen is seen by many team principals in Formula One as the ideal new broom, and there is resistance within the sport to Todt, who was believed to concentrate on commercial issues while running teams for Ferrari and Peugeot-Citroën.
