Max Mosley, President of Formula One racing’s governing body, the FIA, has confirmed he will not be standing for re-election to the post in October. Instead, Mosley is advocating former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt as his successor.

Mosley, who became President in 1993, formally announced his intention to stand down late last month, since when he says he has received dozens of messages from FIA member clubs asking him to reconsider. However, in a letter to the clubs published by the FIA on Wednesday he says his decision is now final.
