Ari Vatanen on Tuesday agreed to end legal action against the FIA.

The presidential candidate last Friday petitioned Paris' Tribunal de Grande Instance to "impose a number of measures" ahead of this Friday's FIA elections.

The 57-year-old had questioned the trustworthiness of the apparently democratic process, but the FIA protested that its own procedures "already provide more safeguards than those he is asking the court to impose".

Vatanen, as well as his opponent Jean Todt, met with the incumbent Max Mosley on Tuesday, and "Ari Vatanen has withdrawn his court application", the FIA said afterwards in a media statement.

"Both candidates endorsed the fairness of the FIA's proposed voting procedure," the governing body added.
