Former Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 team principal Jean Todt will have to leave the position of President of the International Automobile Federation at the end of 2021, as he will no longer be re-elected given the fact that he will be at the end of his last term admitted by the statutory constraints of the organization in Place de la Concorde.
In recent days Bernie Ecclestone had speculated on the possible candidacy of the former Ferrari President, Luca Cordero di Montezemolo. In this regard, Di Montezemolo issued a declaration to FormulaPassion.it that clears up any doubts: “I read about this hypothesis. I exclude that the presidency of the FIA can be included in the list of my intentions or possibilities” – Luca Cordero di Montezemolo explained, according to the Italian media.
The other names as Jean Todt’s possible successors are the English Graham Stoker, a prominent sports law attorney, Todt’s long-time right hand, David Richards current president of motorsport of the United Kingdom, Alejandro Agag of Madrid, the current boss of Formula E and finally Mohammed bin Sulayem of Dubai, with a long career in the rally and presence in sports car politics.
