Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali on Monday added fuel to speculation that his predecessor may be preparing to bid for presidency of the FIA.

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali on Monday added fuel to speculation that his predecessor may be preparing to bid for presidency of the FIA.

Last week it emerged that 63-year-old Jean Todt had amicably severed his last ties to the Maranello based marque, moving the Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport to muse that the Frenchman may be clearing the path to succeed Max Mosley.

Domenicali, who took over long-serving Todt's role at the beginning of last year, was asked about the speculation on Monday in interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Probed as to whether the future of the sport would be better served by Mosley or Todt, Domenicali answered: "I worked alongside him (Todt) so I do not know Mosley as well.

"I personally believe Todt is a person who knows how to interpret a role well in the context that is required," he added.
