Vicky Chandhok, motor sport boss and former president of the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), and the father of GP2 driver Karun, has been mentioned as one possible successor to Max Mosley.
He told the Indian daily Asian Age: "It is certainly a great privilege to see my name doing the rounds along with Dennis and (Jean) Todt. But I personally feel that I am not ready for it."
Chandhok has long been associated with the Paris based FIA, and is known in the paddock for being close to F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.
Also mentioned as potential candidates for Mosley's job this week have been American Nick Craw, the FIA sporting president, and 1981 world rally champion-turned European parliamentarian Ari Vatanen.
