GP Week : Issue 52
Change at the top of th Vicky Chandhok Nationality: Indian Current Role: Head of Indian ASN Prospects: Chandhok represents one of the world’s largest automotive markets, and has many years of experience working within the FIA and India’s own federation. An honest, genuine and decent man, he’s a mixture of an out and out racer, a traditionalist and a realistic 21st Century businessman. Bubbling over with personality, he would be a popular choice and a breath of fresh air. His good relationship with Bernie Ecclestone would also be helpful in negotiating new and fairer terms for F1’s future with the teams. Nick Craw Nationality: American Current Role: FIA Deputy Vice President Sport Prospects: A former director of the Peace Corps, Craw represents one of the most important car markets in the world and has high level experience within the FIA. A good mediator who is respected within the FIA and the automotive and motorsport worlds. He understands the politics of the FIA but would forge his own path. Possibly too old to mount a serious bid, however. Michel Boeri Nationality: Monegasque Current Role: President of FIA Senate Prospects: Boeri’s chances are slim. His best shot at the FIA Presidency came in the early 1990s in a head-to-head with Jean Marie Balestre, but this was a battle that would be taken on and won by Mosley. Boeri is perhaps too old to fill the role today, but there has been talk (denied by Mosley) that he will take over Mosley’s F1 responsibilities until October. If he excels, a single term Presidency could be on the cards.
