PRESIDENTIAL RACE: In Abu Dhabi, Gary Meenaghan reported FIA VP Mohammed ben Sulayem has confirmed that "he will not run in the upcoming FIA presidential elections and will instead throw his considerable support behind incumbent Jean Todt." The 51-year-old Emirati has been FIA VP since '08, and had been "recently urged by several motorsport federations to challenge" Todt and former British Labour party policy advisor David Ward for election on Dec. 6. However, having analyzed both candidates’ manifestos, Ben Sulayem said he will back Todt, the Frenchman who has led the governing body for global motorsport since '09 (THE NATIONAL 10/18).
