Mosley Re-Elected as FIA President for 4 Years

Friday October 5th, 2001

Max Mosley has, as expected, been re-elected as the president of Formula One's governing body - the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA).

Mosley, 61, has not, however, been re-elected for the usual five-year term and his new presidency will last for four years and will expire in October 2005. Mosley, who first took up the presidency of the FIA in 1991, was unchallenged for the election as the FIA's General Assembly voted for the presidency at their meeting in Cologne on Friday.

American Robert L. Darbelnet and Italian Marco Piccinini were also elected deputy presidents as Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone, a former vice-president in charge of promotional affairs for the FIA, was appointed a vice president of honour.

The General Assembly also decided to allow the media to attend international court of appeal hearings in future and allowed the inaugural meeting of the FIA's Foundation for the Automobile and Society to take place. The foundation, a registered charity in the UK, has been endowed with $300 million to help promote safety on the road and track, environmental protection and sustainable mobility.

The FIA also confirmed on Friday that they would move back to Paris from Switzerland in January next year.
