Jean Todt says that being appointed as FIA president for a third consecutive term was the result of having acquired a position of "trust".

Jean Todt has said that being appointed as FIA president for a third consecutive term was the result of having acquired a position of "trust".

Although former rally driver Ari Vatanen earlier stood against the Frenchman, no candidate tried to unseat 71-year-old Todt this time around.

"The FIA community was happy with the candidate and wanted me to continue," Todt told broadcaster RTBF.

"At first, they knew me by what I had done in my career, and now trust is acquired.

"Over the years, we have got to know each other, worked together, talked and communicated. Today we have a community that is united."

Todt has been in the role since 2009, when he succeeded Max Mosely.
