Q & A with Ari Vatanen
The FIA will elect a new president in Paris on Friday, with either Jean Todt or Ari Vatanen to be picked as the man to take motorsport and motoring into the new decade. AUTOSPORT asked each of the election candidates for his thoughts on his campaign, what he stood for and what he hopes to achieve in office.
4. At the forthcoming UN climate change conference in Copenhagen, western democracies are almost certain to come under pressure to make significant reductions in CO2 emissions. What can the FIA do to improve motorsports's environmental credentials and ensure its long-term sustainability in the face of ever tougher "green" regulations?
AV: Motorsport should always spearhead technology, wherever it can. And I am a very strong believer in technology; man has always underestimated it. Nanotechnology has given us steel that is 100 times stronger and six times lighter than before.
(Editor's Note: Really? He must be referring to nanotubes)
