it's all fine and dandy, this ward dude against todt
what does this mean for the general motorsport fans (specially F1 fans)??? i mean
-what is the implication of who gets to be FIA president???
-does this Ward guy has shady background or is a foot-licker of bernie E???
-what bearing does the past connection with MAx Mosely has with this Ward guy???
-why would anyone care if Todt is replaced??? he wasn't as visible as Max mosely IIRC.
-what connection does LDM has with Todt and how he can influence the outcome of the election???
-is LDM the surprise 3rd candidate??
-how will this affect the running of Formula 1???
-Finally, again, why should a Motorsport fan should care about this election and the power struggle??? (in laymans term ofcourse)
as a member of the 'Formula 1' worshiper club, i'd like anyone the shed some lights on this please
Personally, I'd be more interested to hear what it means for general motorsport fans (excluding F1).
F1 sort of takes care of itself thanks to Bernie, and the FIA should be concentrating on other things, like helping the WRC become stronger again, and sorting out the absolute mess that is the world of junior single seater racing in Europe.
As I've said before on this forum, the reason I like Todt as FIA president is that he IS aware that there is other forms of racing, besides F1. He came through rallying, and was part of Peugeot's Le Mans team in the early 90s.
Mosley wasn't like that. He came through F1, and seemed to be an F1 exclusive guy. I can't recall him attending rounds of the WRC, or turning up at Le Mans, like Todt has done, for instance. So to hear that Ward is (for want of a better word) a Mosleyite, concerns me.
Maybe I'm wrong, but he doesn't really seem to have been as present in motorsport over the years as Todt has.
It'll be interesting to see how it develops though.
