The appointment was a formality following the withdrawal of his only opponent David Ward last month.
Ward was unable to obtain support from a sufficient number of vice presidents to gain a nomination, a requirement he campaigned against during his brief election bid.
Among Todt’s plans for his next term are the formation of a Resource Allocation Working Group. “It will be their task to determine together how best to use the new resources arising from new activities and including the renegotiation of the [F1] Concorde Agreement,” said Todt.
Todt also plans to create a Motor Sport Development department and fund to encourage the development of grassroots motorsport.
He added that improving the governance of the FIA remains a priority. “We have decided that the Statutes Review Commission should continue its work to assess the reforms which have already been implemented and propose, if necessary, further improvements.”
Todt, formerly Ferrari’s team principal in F1, succeeded Max Mosley as FIA president at the end of 2009.
