FIA President Jean Todt has announced Friday he will run for a third term in office. Todt was elected to the role in in October 2009, succeeding Max Mosley.

Todt announced this to all FIA Club Presidents in a letter.

The Frenchman thanked his “FIA family” as well as announced a few assembly changes to go along with the news.

“I am deeply moved by the gracious, generous and unwavering expressions of support I have received from our FIA family.

“In view of this, together with Michelle, my son Nicolas, and my Leadership Team, I have decided to seek a renewed mandate as President of the FIA.”

Deputy President for Mobility, Brian Gibbons, will take on a new role as President of the FIA Senate. He replaces Nick Craw, who steps down at the end of his term as specified by an age limit.

“He has given so much to the FIA and to international motor sport over many years,” Todt said of Craw.
