Todt re-elected for third term as FIA President
8 December 2017 – Jean Todt has duly been elected for another four-year term as FIA President, having stood unopposed, during the FIA's General Assembly in Paris.
Todt presided over Peugeot Sport during the 1980s before being recruited in 1993 to lead Ferrari in Formula 1, culminating in five straight double titles between 2000 and 2004.
Todt stood down from Ferrari in 2007 and was elected as FIA President in 2009, and stood unopposed to remain in the role in 2013.
Todt announced in May that he would stand for another four-year term and last month the FIA confirmed that he was the sole candidate.
The 71-year-old's new four-year tenure was confirmed on Friday "unanimously by acclamation, and by a show of hands", meaning he is set to remain at the helm until 2021.
Todt has already signalled that his term, his third, will be his last in charge of motorsport's governing body.
"I would like to thank all of the Member Clubs of the FIA for their support," said Todt.
"I see this as a validation of the direction the FIA has taken under my leadership, and as encouragement to continue the programme we have pursued over the past eight years.
"My ambition remains for our Federation to continue to strive to be the best it possibly can – stronger, smarter, more secure, more professional and globally respected."
