Jackie StewartSir Jackie Stewart has denied speculations that he’s putting himself forward as Max Mosley’s possible successor. The former World Champion, often in disputes with Mosley, has joined the group of those calling for the Briton’s resignation, suggesting the need of a successor outside Formula 1.

“I believe it can’t be someone from within the sport”, said Stewart to Daily Telegraph. “It needs to be a captain of industry, a CEO of standing, man or woman. But this cannot be a racing driver. I don’t care who he is, how many championships he has won. No racing driver I know of is well enough prepared to take on that job.”

“It needs to be someone who is expert in economics and business structures. It cannot be a retiring team owner or team principal”, he concluded.
