They're both Ferrari lovers so you surely need a third category of "neither" to gauge the true feeling out there. Not that it matters to Formula One, but a Todt appointment would see me turn my back on the sport completely.

The teams themselfs have caused a slow up of rules and ideas that has prevented a improvement in the sport. Remember alot of the teams have to agree on things.

The power if with the teams, but kudos for Max for doing a good job on driver safety, but now were in a era where people want overtaking and racing back, slick tyres next year is a good route.

Perhaps it doesn't matter that much who is President. But then again,2003, one lap quali, 2 quali sessions, points system not rewarding the winner as before 10-8, the loss of race warm up-1 ENGINe per weekend, now 1 engine for 2 weekends etc

All I really want from the next president or same president, is the return of PROPER QUALIFYING-ON LOW FUEL! It'll be a start.

Ari Vatanen(MEP from France at the moment) was interviewed few days ago and he doesnt rule out FIA job.

voted Todt, because anyone is better than Mosley.

But if i was in charge i'd try to find someone who has less of a racing background but more of an economical one. He'd have to be enthusiast about motorsports in general (not just F1). But he'd even more than that have to know how to sell motorsports to the fans, the participants and the sponsors. It has to be worthwhile for all of them.

If i had to choose someone of the present F1-guys only Briatore would be in my mind.

He'd be great. A respected figure.

Perhaps WRC would also finally get the respect it deserves, rather than an unwelcome visit by Spanky when he isn't welcome anywhere else.

New poll with Vatanen, Stewart and Regis added please! I will not vote in this poll as it is.

I would say Todt, if only because I hear he needs to add more sweaters to his collection. And with him out of the Ferrari racing director spot, he needs some type of official Sweater to wear when it's 115* F outside.

Yes, and then get rid of that silly parc ferme, allow re-fuelling, re-introduce T-car, two engines/race... I miss those days when life was so much simpler, and quali had a meaning to it. :)

The truth...

But I suspect that was the reason it was posted - for spin purposes.
