Vatanen announces vice-presidents

FIA presidential candidate Ari Vatanen has announced the list of vice-presidents for sport who support him in his candidacy.

The Finn will be backed by HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein from Jordan, Antonis Michaelides from Cyprus, John Naylor from Ireland, Arie Ruitenbeek from Holland, Kari O. Sohlberg from Finland, Mumtaz Tachincioglu from Turkey and Jack Wavamunno from Uganda.

"Again, I'm delighted with this selection of people who have grouped behind me", said Vatanen.

"Some of them represent countries that are very well-established in international motor sport, but others come from emerging nations. I think it is absolutely essential to have these reformist people, considering it is change we are seeking at the elections.

"If we want to know, for instance, what needs to be done for motor sport in Africa, there can be no better person to ask than Jack Wavamunno.

"On the other hand, it is also important to remember that Hermann Tomczyk, my proposed Deputy President for Sport, represents DMSB, one of the biggest clubs of all."
