The Times newspaper said the potential candidate is David Ward, who worked alongside Frenchman Todt’s predecessor Max Mosley. Ward is currently the director-general of the FIA foundation for the automobile and society. “This is not what I intended nor what I wanted, but I am certainly thinking about [standing for the position] because it is important to have a debate,” he is quoted.
