The Frenchman came to the helm of Formula One’s governing body in 2009, succeeding Max Mosley. However, despite many believing he would go unchallenged into a second term, The Times has today reported that David Ward could be set to stand.
Ward currently holds the position of Director General of the FIA Foundation, and he explained to The Times how he felt it was necessary to stand.
“This is not what I intended nor what I wanted, but I am certainly thinking about (standing) because it is important to have a debate,” Ward told the newspaper.
The election is set to be held towards the end of the year.
