McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh has been voted in to succeed Luca di Montezemolo as the chairman of the Formula 1 Teams Association.

After a meeting of the F1 Commission (see article on new points system) in Monaco today, the team principals then met to discuss plans for next year. This included the positions of senior officials.

Whitmarsh will take over from Luca di Montezemelo later this month. Also, Christian Horner has been made chairman of the FOTA Sporting Working Group. Ross Brawn will remain head of the Technical Working Group.

Also, in this meeting, an agreement was reached as to the launching of the teams’ new cars in January. Details of this will be in my next article, which will be published tonight.
