"FIA battle puts Ricciardo in the shade "

Not amongst race fans if the comments sections here are any reflection.

Besides, the FIA election is a complete stitch-up.

The world at large is far more interested in Ricciardo than the FIA, more's the pity.
Todt has done a good job, having inherited a nest of vipers and I believe the new engine formula, once under way, will be the way to go.
There is already far too much power in too few hands, particularly the old goat, and a political administrator is not the way to go. Smacks far too much of Commissars.

Richard, Yeah I read that, now that is quite interesting. Also stories going about of BMW returning in 2016 as an engine manufacturer, they must fancy the idea of "seasoning" blocks again!

Frozen Candle, yes she will for sure go far in journalism there is no place like the UK that gives such a chance.
Anyhow when Totd replaced Moseley FI got rid of one half its chronic cancer, a cancer is said that it's deadly when it spreads, God forbid that F1 gets any cronies of that one half cancer.

Is this just a "wind-up" to make the FIA election look democratic or is it genuine.
Todt has a lot of history in motorsport both in Rallying, F1 and other disciplines,- what is his opponents practical background up to now?
