FOTA confirms Whitmarsh as chairman

Martin WhitmarshThe Formula One Teams' Association has confirmed that McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh has been elected as its new chairman for the year 2010.

As first revealed by AUTOSPORT in December, Whitmarsh is taking over the mandate from Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, whose one-year term ended last month.

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali has been elected FOTA's vice chairman.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner takes the role of chairman of the Sporting Regulations Working Group, while Mercedes GP's Ross Brawn will maintain his role of Chairman of the Technical Regulations Working Group.

"All members placed on record their thanks to Luca di Montezemolo for his valuable leadership and remarkable contribution in the successful establishment of FOTA, as well as all the other key figures who contributed greatly to a successful first year," said FOTA in a statement.

"FOTA Teams now look forward to working with Martin Whitmarsh to continue the development of activities in the long-term interest of Formula One, in collaboration with all other stakeholders.

"Each member of the association, which now includes all Teams competing in Formula One, is entitled to appoint one representative within the Executive Committee and within each of the standing Working Groups. The different bodies work closely together in order to define FOTA's objectives and initiatives."
