Todt announces cabinet members list

FIA presidential candidate Jean Todt has revealed his full cabinet members list of the key figures who will work for him if he is successful in October's election

With the official nominations for the election having opened on Friday, Todt is the first man to confirm his senate members, mobility vice presidents and sport vice presidents.

Todt believes the cabinet members (full list below) have exactly the qualities that he thinks the FIA needs to take it into a new era.

"I am delighted to have the support of what I believe is a dynamic leadership team with outstanding experience and knowledge of all the issues central to motoring and motor sport today," said Todt. "It is also a team representative of the entire FIA with members from across Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and Latin America.

"I am particularly proud that so many leading members of the FIA family have backed our vision for the future. Both the sporting and mobility sides of the FIA share common values supporting fairness for consumers and competitors, for safety and sustainability on road and track, and the right to enjoy the freedom that the automobile can provide.

"To coincide with the submission of our full candidacy list our team is also publishing our 'Road Map to Renewal' which summarises our key policy proposals for motor sport and mobility. We recognise that the FIA needs to renew itself and through innovation, excellence and teamwork, we can better meet the needs of our membership and meet the challenges of the years ahead."
