Sir Jackie Stewart was asked to campaign - Another side to the FIA Presidency story

Published by Christine

Sir Jackie Stewart has told Autosport that he was asked by someone within the F1 paddock to run for the FIA Presidency, but he decided against it. According to the article, he says:

I think that you have to bring in a considerably younger person... My view is that nobody should be taken from the cockpit, the garage or the pitlane from Formula 1 – although I think there is an enormous desire for change.

He also adds that he thinks nothing will change if Todt gets in, whilst Vatanen's chances are looking less and less likely, but would be the better choice. You won't hear any disagreement from us on that score.
