London, England - Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone will come under scrutiny on Tuesday as a report is tabled at a meeting of F1's board.

The report has been authored by Jean-Marc Huet, a board member and former Uniliver financial chief, and comes hot on the heels of criticism of the 85-year-old F1 supremo.

Amid a controversial last-minute qualifying shakeup for 2016, and after the F1 supremo slammed his own sport in comments to the press, even Ecclestone's usual ally Sebastian Vettel last week questioned the sport's current "leadership".

'If someone can run it better...'

British newspapers the Telegraph and Daily Mail say a succession plan for life after the Ecclestone reign will be discussed at the meeting on Tuesday.

The Telegraph quoted Ecclestone as saying: "At the last board meeting we said somebody should have a look and see if we're doing things right, and if we want to make some changes."

And when asked by the Daily Mail if he would consider stepping down, the Briton answered: "If someone can run it better, no problem. I'd make way, 100%."
