Monisha Kaltenborn has raced into pole position to succeed Formula 1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

It emerged recently that, as a result of the Russian rescue deal, Sauber team boss and co-owner Kaltenborn could be shuffled out.

Kaltenborn (42), has often been mentioned alongside Red Bull's Christian Horner as a possible successor for Ecclestone.


At 82-years-old and now facing serious bribery charges in Germany, Ecclestone was asked the question about his succession by Sport Bild magazine.

Ecclestone said: "Why not a woman? I can imagine that absolutely. I believe that women generally don't have such big egos, and they don't need to go and play golf in order to close deals.

"They simply work harder to get the same recognition as men. Since their ego is less important, they are also less emotional in making decisions."
