An era is coming to an end and with the recent passing of former FIA president Max Mosley, the tenure of his successor, Jean Todt, is ending in December.
British barrister Graham Stoker announced on Tuesday his candidacy to become the president of Formula One’s governing body with nine times Le Mans 24 Hours winner Tom Kristensen on his team.
International Automobile Federation President Todt replaced Mosley back in 2009 but will step down after 12 years of running the organization.
Stoker is Todt’s current deputy president for sport and if elected, that role would go to Kristensen.
Belgian Thierry Willemarck, the current deputy president for mobility, and New Zealand’s Brian Gibbons, president of the FIA Senate, are supporting Stoker’s campaign and seek to continue in their roles.
