At the end of the year the French Jean Todt will leave his position as president of the International Automobile Federation, since he has held since 2009. The candidates to succeed him are the English lawyer Graham stoker, right hand of the Gaul; and the former Emirati pilot Mohammed Ben Sulayem.

Both have already made their platform public. Stoker made no secret of his intention to continue with the path taken by Todt 12 years ago; while Ben Sulayem bets on increase diversity and inclusion in motorsports.

Without a doubt, Todt's management can be described as successful due to the importance that the FIA ​​took on various issues related to safety and mobility, in addition to promoting environmentally friendly motorsports; But the Emirati proposal also sounds tempting, mainly for our region. 

Stoker and Ben Sulayem will meet in the next FIA Congress of the Americas that will take place from November 2 to 4 in the Mexican city of Puebla. 

There they will be heard by some thirty federations, many of which have a vote that is worth double for their relevance in mobility and sport. This is the case of several clubs in South America, including those of Argentina y Uruguay.

Although both candidates already have allies, there are some who have not yet defined their position. That is why this meeting appears as the key to defining the future successor of Todt.
