Todt Re-Elected To Third Term As FIA President

Jean Todt was recently re-elected as President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) at the organization’s General Assembly in Paris.

Standing unopposed, Todt was handed a third term in office unanimously by acclamation, and by a show of hands. The new mandate will see Todt continue to develop the global federation of Motorsport and Mobility organizations until the end of 2021. A full list of the appointments made during the Assembly will be published in due course.

Todt subsequently outlined an ambitious program for what will be his final term in office, focusing on three key areas: innovation, advocacy and the development of a strong network of Mobility and Sport Clubs.

Reaffirming the FIA’s role as the governing body of Motor Sport worldwide, he said: “From time to time there are some who challenge this role, 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. This is the vital role the FIA plays and one it will continue to play in the future.

Expanding on the theme of innovation, he added: “Innovation is essential if the FIA is to continue to improve and take its rightful place in the world as the leader in Mobility and Motorsport development,” he said. “To encourage this, we propose to establish an FIA Innovation Fund.”
