FIA Foundation Director General David Ward Resigns From Position To Run For Presidency
Published August 30, 2013
CRUCIAL TIME: In London, Kevin Eason reported "this is a critical moment for Formula One with disputes and fears over the sport’s entire future." Ecclestone "will face criminal charges in a German court in the next few weeks, while Todt’s leadership has been questioned right from the start of his presidency." F1 "still has no official commercial structure with the Concorde Agreement, the binding tripartite deal between the teams, the FIA and Ecclestone’s F1 company, still to be signed, even though the deadline was at the end of last year, and the sport has been consumed by in-fighting and intrigue." Ward "has emerged as a potential peacemaker with an agenda for change" (LONDON TIMES, 8/29).
