Jean Todt unanimously re-elected as FIA president
London: Jean Todt was unanimously re-elected as president of the Formula One`s world governing body by the FIA general assembly on Friday, according to reports.
According to the Guardian, the Frenchman had stood unopposed after his British rival David Ward withdrew his candidacy last month.
An FIA spokesman said the 250 delegates had voted without abstention for the former Ferrari team principal Todt to serve a second four-year period at the helm of the Paris-based federation, the report added.
The FIA (Federation Internationale de l`Automobile) is the governing body of Formula One and world rallying, the report said.
Todt saw off opposition from Bernie Ecclestone to introduce a new engine formula, which will see 1.6-litre turbo-charged V6 engines replace the 2.4-litre naturally aspirated V8s that have been used in F1 since 2006, the report further said.
