David Ward Throws Hat in the Ring for FIA Presidency
August 29, 2013
David Ward, apoplectic who is the Director General of the FIA Foundation, cialis dosage will leave his post with the charity as he looks to challenge Jean Todt for FIA Presidency.
Jean Todt, the former Ferrari boss, currently heads the Formula One racing’s governing body where he has been president since October 2009 after beating out Ari Vatanen.
“After much careful thought I have decided to stand,” said Ward in a statement. “The election period begins in September and it will be necessary for me to approach FIA members to secure nominations. In these circumstances I think that the correct course of action is to resign.
“Election processes inevitably involve robust and lively debate, and whilst the Foundation is independent and there is no legal requirement for me to resign, I believe that it is in the best interests of the charity that I stand down now.”
Ward, 56, made his name as a policy advisor in UK politics. The Briton has worked in road safety for the past 18 years and played a key role in establishing the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011- 2010.
Frenchman Todt has yet to confirm whether he plans to stand for a second term in December’s contest.
