FIA: Qatar’s Nasser Khalifa Al Attiyah voted FIA Vice President for Sport Middle East replacing Ben Sulayem

Jean Todt and Nasser Al Attiyah in Paris last Friday Dec 6th 2013

Paris, Dec 6th, 2013 -The FIA General Assembly, held in Paris, France, marked the end of the annual meeting week attended by sport and mobility FIA Member Clubs from around the world and which culminated with the FIA Prize Giving Gala that evening. The FIA President, Jean Todt, along with Senate President Nick Craw and Deputy Presidents Brian Gibbons and Graham Stoker, welcomed the delegates to the meeting, thanking them for their active participation in the week’s activities.

Nasser Al Attiyah is voted as Vice President of FIA for Sport in Middle East region-

In a historical achievement for Qatar, and the wider Gulf region,  Nasser Bin Khalifa Al Attiyah – the head of the Qatari National Sporting Authority (QMMF) and General manager of Losail International Circuit, was newly elected as a FIA Vice President for Sport, replacing UAE’s Mohammed Ben Sulayem Sulayem who had previously served two terms as the Vice President for Sport, since 2008 under current FIA President Jean Todt and his predecessor, Max Mosley.

John Todd was re-elected for the second successive period till Dec.2017, Todt was un-challenged, due to British candidate David Ward failing to submit a full list of votes as per the regulatory procedures of FIA.

Al Attiyah is the first Arab to occupy the same position in two separate International unions of both FIA & FIM [Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme].

The Frenchman John Todd list was announced the favourite to head the FIA, the list includes 27 members, 6 of them are Vice Presidents joining Al Attiyah in the election.

Al Attiyah is currently in charge of the Middle East region for Sport while Ben Sulayem now heads the region as Vice President for the Mobility aspect of the FIA.

Al Attiyah announced his full proud and satisfaction as a Qatari, Gulf, and Arab of this achievement

“I am sure that what has come true here in the headquarter of FIA – France – at the general assembly meeting, something I am personally as a Qatari, Gulf, and Arab proud of it” Al Attiyah Said.

Al Attiyah also emphasized that such achievement is considered a commitment to promote and develop the concept of FIA in the Middle East region, and this is what we all seek throughout this position.

Prayer for eternal life. “Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”

Strap yourselves in - it's our top 10 onboard clips of 2019! 👀 🍿 🙂 ... See Less

Awesome opening lap from George Russell, now let’s just get him in a quicker car.

When you watch clips like this you realize just how crazy fast and how close together they really are , and even worse when they are driving hard in the rain !!! Mad respect to all of the F1 drivers !!!

I abaolutly Love how Stroll is complaning about Vettel coming back very dangerously and in the same second he does the same to the Torro Rosso😂

The middle of the pack, that's where most of the racing takes place. Excellent choice for the No.1 clip.

What a nice thumbnail, Max ruining Kimi's race at Spa...

Hulkenberg’s first lap at Bahrain was incredible, more impressive than a lot on this list!

And leclerc overtaking verstappen in Silverstone?? Where is? 🙄 instead of putting giovinazzi's crash in SPA

Russell's was probably the most impressive.

With all the technology available, there should be a means of switching from the Sky Sports main channel to on board channels to follow any/all of the drivers at any time, or for the entire race. I.e. Go to your fave driver and ride with him the whole way, or switch around, and/or go to the middle of the pack and pick up on a duel or two. It would really make F1 much more exciting ... pay per view on each driver?

You can feel the pain of Giovanazzi's crash!

Position 1 Is awesome! Excellent choice

Where is the drag race between Hamilton and Gasly for the podium? 🤓🤔

I'm really a big fan of George. This kid ha a potential to be like Lewis

That Silverstone battle was top notch and shows the difference between Bottas and Rosberg. Body work everywhere if it was the German no doubt and the ‘racing’ not so good

The Russell clip is a real eye-opener for what he could achieve in a competitive car

how come there was no talk about George Russel"s moves in Hungary?

Some great races this season. Germany, Silverstone and Brazil were incredible!

Unforgettable how stroll complaining about vettel’s entering dangerously into the track while entering himself dangerously into the track.

Wow.. I didnt think I ever saw the Singapore clip. How awesome is that, 4 cars battling in that street circuit

Holy Russell at Hungarian GP!

On board with Halo, play station F1, very close to Formula E. Thanks God this year the stewards leted race them, at least to the top ones.

Racing Point used turbo in Bahrain 🤣

Vettel .. 1 video 2 spins and two disasters .. thank you F1 for summarizing Vettel's season 🙉🙉🙉

I still don't understand what Max was trying to do with that lunge start at Spa and then asking what Kimi's doing?

Where's the onboard with vettel & leclerc in Brasil? 😅
