“I took this job because carting close to my heart, – he said in an interview with FIA Auto. – Their first steps in Motorsport I did it in karting. Here I learned a lot not only about racing but also about competition, justice. Here I learned the joy of victory and the bitterness of defeat.
The FIA President Jean Todt knew I wanted to give back to the sport that he gave me. Todt is aware of my passion for karting, and therefore offered me the position, which I gladly agreed.
I look forward to beginning work in this area. In recent years, the leaders of the go-kart did a lot of good, and I in turn will try to continue their work.”
