The introduction of a ‘halo’ head protection device on Formula 1 cars in 2017 has been agreed by the F1 Commission.
Fifa presidential hopeful Gianni Infantino says it is “now or never” for the future of football’s world governing body.
Infantino is hoping to succeed Sepp Blatter at Friday’s election after the 79-year-old Swiss was banned for eight years on corruption allegations.
Fellow candidate Prince Ali bin al-Hussein has made an official request for the election to be suspended.
But Infantino says it is almost certain to go ahead as planned.
The vote of up to 209 Fifa member federations takes place with the organisation embroiled in a corruption scandal with dozens of senior officials indicted by United States prosecutors.
Infantino is up against:
- South African businessman Tokyo Sexwale
- Asian Football Confederation president Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa
- Former Fifa deputy general secretary Jerome Champagne
- Fifa vice-president for Asia Prince Ali bin-al-Hussein of Jordan
Blatter and Uefa boss Michel Platini were banned in December from all football-related activities following an ethics investigation.
They were found guilty of breaches surrounding a £1.3m ($2m) “disloyal payment” made to Platini in 2011.
Blatter, who had been in charge of Fifa since 1998, was already stepping down this month, but denies any wrongdoing and has appealed against his ban.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Infantino said Fifa has to implement its reforms quickly if it is to regain its reputation.
“We have all witnessed in the past few months sadly what has happened around Fifa. Truly the image and reputation of Fifa is at its worst,” said Infantino, who is general secretary of European football’s governing body Uefa.
“Something needs to be done. Reforms need to be implemented. They need to be voted first and then they have to be implemented.
“If we don’t do something now about it, to restore the image of Fifa and the reputation of Fifa – and to increase the development of football in the world – then I see no future for Fifa.”
Asked if that would mean Fifa could be shut down, Infantino replied: “No, I think football will always exist but as an organisation the way we have lived and perceived Fifa in the past months cannot continue.”
