We are here for our Clubs, ASNs and ACNs in order to build a brighter future together. To do so, we have identified 5 main objectives or ambitions:

1st: Improve the natural audience of the FIA and its member clubs

The FIA family has always been stronger together. Thanks to our collective work and commitment, our influence should reach beyond our natural topics.

 With the grant campaigns and tools that we have put in place coupled with the good ideas you will bring forward, the FIA and its members can and will expand levels of impact.

2nd ambition: Deliver a New Deal for motor sport

What is the New Deal I publicly proposed during the lockdown? As you know, in the 30’s, Roosevelt’s New Deal allowed to overcome the global crisis that had shaken the world at that time. Our “New Deal” means laying the foundations for the recovery and an ambitious and sustainable future for motor sport. That’s why:

    We have introduced new rules to reduce costs, in F1 and all our Championships and categories, for the racing teams but also for the organisation of competitions,

    We are reflecting on the positioning of our championships and their mutual complementarity,.

    And we discuss about how to increase motor sport popularity while bringing it closer to other fundamental societal goals such as those that relate to the environment.

Moreover, the New Deal involves mass participation (digital motor sport is a good example of an effective mean to push motor sport Boundaries) as well as a new Business model with franchise system: a win-win situation for all the stakeholders.

3rd ambition: Take part in the worldwide debate on mobility

Clearly, the Covid 19 and the confining that resulted from it have strongly impacted the mobility world.  The lockdown that half of the global population has experienced was the opportunity to realize how much we value personal mobility & resilient transportation systems. To a certain extent, mobility is life.

 Access to a wide range of choices is what we stand for. With more and more data available in real time, our Clubs are well positioned to harness this information and to deliver more immediate services to their members. I know that, in particular, our Clubs in Region 1 are working hard with the European Commission to safeguard access to data for the owners of motor vehicles and this too is a vital issue that we must support.

We could become the “go-to” organization when questions of mobility are discussed around the world.  We have the knowledge, the information and the experience that is essential for an informed debate. Our ambition should be to show that to the world.

4th ambition: Reinvigorate road safety actions

Road safety remains one of our strong ambitions and this crisis has revealed new challenges. It is time to re-set the debate in which “safety as a core value” should be at the centre of everything we do and in the design of the road transportation systems. I strongly defended this idea during the 3rd Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety in Stockholm in February alongside the FIA High Level Panel’s members.

Accelerating innovations and uptake of technology in both developed and developing economies will provide new pathways to preserve people’s lives on the roads. My book Millions of lives to save on the roads, that I sent you a few months ago, has help to set the alarm bells ringing, but it’s not enough. We need each and every one of you to join the fight against one of the most devastating pandemics.

5th ambition: Reveal the FIA’s contribution to broader society

FIA is a global actor and its role doesn’t stop at the frontiers of motor sport and mobility. Our Federation has been committed for many years to protecting environment with, for example, the signing at the beginning of the year of the @UN Sports for Climate Action Framework. We also keep on strengthening our partnership with the IFRC, multiplying common initiatives. In the particular context, the FIA is neither indifferent nor insensitive to world events.

We will thus pursue our mission to bring the entire world together through sport and mobility services, whilst respecting the scope of our mandate. Our Federation will continue to be guided for all Motorsport and Mobility matters by the Fundamental Principles of our Statutes which state that the FIA should fight any form of discrimination and notably on account of skin colour, religion, ethnic or social origin… As we promote gender equality with FIA Women in Motor Sport Commission, we must promote diversity in Motor Sport.

Create a New Deal for motor sport, reinvigorate mobility and road safety, enhance our influence through our contribution to society, these are our major ambitions for the times to come. They will guide our future actions as well as the upcoming three days of exchanges.I am sure our discussions will be very fruitful and will lead us to strong decisions.

I propose that we assess the progress made at our December Munich meeting on the occasion of the Annual General Assembly. Thank you again for being here and for taking part in this first-of-a-kind e-event. At this difficult time, I wish you all continued safety and health and I declare the 2020 FIA Sport and Mobility eConference open!
