Carmelo Ezpeleta could be the figure FOTA turns to if the major formula one teams decide to quit formula one at the end of the year, according to the Spanish sports newspaper Diario AS.

He is the CEO of Madrid based Dorna Sports, the commercial rights holder of F1's two-wheeled equivalent MotoGP.

Dorna was bought by CVC, F1's current owner, in 1998 but is now controlled by its management.

It has been credited with transferring the rule-making power of the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) to the GP Manufacturers Association (MSMA).

The newspaper said FOTA has already had contact with Ezpeleta, who would be reportedly willing to take command of a breakaway.
