Jean Todt is to stand this year for a third term as president of Formula One’s governing body, the International Automobile Federation (FIA).
The 71-year-old Frenchman made the announcement in a letter to FIA club presidents, which he also posted on his Twitter feed.
Todt, a former Ferrari boss who led the team to multiple championships with Michael Schumacher, took over from Max Mosley, a Briton, in 2010 and won a second term in 2014.
“Over coming months, my team and I will lay out our detailed programme for the term ahead,” he said.
Formula One is facing significant change with U.S.-based Liberty Media taking over as commercial rights holders in January and ousting former supremo Bernie Ecclestone, who had run the sport for CVC Capital Partners.
