FIA confirms Todt staying president

Jean Todt's continuing role as FIA president was confirmed officially on Friday.

Last month, it became clear the Frenchman would not be dethroned, as his only formal challenger, David Ward, pulled out of the race due to a lack of support.

"I would like to offer my congratulations to Jean Todt who will secure a second term uncontested if not unopposed," Ward said in November.

The news became official on Friday morning, as former Ferrari boss Todt, 67, was elected for a second consecutive four-year term during the FIA's annual general assembly in Paris.
