First female Formula 1 team principal denies wanting Bernie Ecclestone's job: "I wouldn't want to do it."

Dec.7 (GMM) Sauber team boss Monisha Kaltenborn has denied reports she could eventually replace Bernie Ecclestone.

India-born Austrian Kaltenborn, 41, was initially just a lawyer for the Swiss Formula One team, but she was then appointed to the board, named chief executive, and latterly was given a third ownership and in 2012 took over as team boss.

And amid Ecclestone's troubles with the Gerhard Gribkowsky corruption affair, it has been rumoured that the next big step for Kaltenborn could be the F1 chief executive's job.

"There is nothing to it," she told German television SWR.

"I wouldn't want to do it. When I think that Bernie deals not only with one but with twelve teams, then I have plenty of goals I want to achieve with Sauber."
