The new boss?

Max is stepping down and who will step forward?

It seems to me that the main issue is that it is fairly short notice. Three months or so until someone replaces him (October 2004).

Will there be several candidates and where will they come from. It's a long time since we had an election. A high profile name, someone who is already there working behind the scenes. Perhaps a president of a national ASN?

I see (coincidentally?) that the France motorsport federation president Jacques Regis has attacked Mosely for being out of touch. (A bit pointless now!). Will he want to run?

Also does anyone know the procedure?

It'll be someone obscure we don't know about.

It won't be Todt. Well, it best hadn't be anyways. I'd rather have Jeffrey Archer.....

I personally hope for Gerhard Berger! Wishful thinking!

I'm quite frankly stunned that Mosley is stepping down. Although i'm not a big fan i don't see anyone good or qualified enough to take over.

There was a lot of talk of Ron Dennis taking over at the top a year ago, but he recently quashed these rumours. Also it's unlikely he would drop Mclaren in it's current state.

It's unlikely to be an F1 figure.

More a diplomatic-style person from somewhere in the ASNs.

My money is on Todt - best man for the job, without a doubt.

Alesi or one of the 'old boys' would become a good boss, I think.

You have to remember though, FIA doesn't just work with F1, they have larger issues to deal with, such as road safety and such. And also, someone mentioned there could be a vice president who worked with motorsports - and there, you also have to remember, that F1 isn't the only motorsport either.

So there are more people in the world, suited to the job then an F1 personality.

OK, I was quite narrow-minded.

(off topic: Tamás, I think twig was just saying what he thought rather than having a go).

Anyway

Max, himself, has suggested a slight change in structure to allow an overall president and a deputy (vice, etc...) that would deal with motorsport (including F1). He says that the presidents job covers too much an area and he needs help of another representative.

I wonder if this is how it will go, or whether it would need Max to impliment this change?

I was going to suggest Sir Jackie Stewart but with all respect to Sir Jackie, I think he is too old for the job. What a shame he wasn't considered when the appointment of Max was made.

I think Max's successor will need to be someone who is more a politician as the job encompasses so many aspects of motorsport. To my mind David Richards would be an ideal candidate but why would he relinquish his role as head of BAR?

Of course we shouldn't overlook people like Colin Hilton at the MSA who has a great deal of experience in heading a motorsports body.

Like Knowlsey, I suspect it will be someone obscure that we have never heard of, possibly another Frenchman.
