Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Jean Todt has been re-elected as the President of the FIA for a second term. The details of an unopposed election isn’t really important but what is important is his manifesto and plan for the next term:
- Improving the FIA’s governance and administration
- Motor Sport development (grassroots level)
- Road safety and sustainable development (being green)
Todt took the helm as former president Max Mosley’s favorite in 2009 and while most have noticed a markedly different management style than Mosley’s, others wonder what exactly it is that Todt does as the silence from his office is deafening.
Let us hope that the first initiative regarding governance can include steward consistency in Formula 1 and the cessation of gimmicks and contrivances to “spice up the show”.
