Bernie Ecclestone on Thursday insisted he is not worried that next year's Indian Grand Prix might also turn into a crisis.

Delhi, also to host F1's inaugural Indian race late in 2011, is currently embroiled in crisis over its shambolic organisation of the forthcoming Commonwealth Games.

There are security, disease and infrastructure concerns that have already caused some top athletes to pull out, amid the looming threat that the entire games might have to be called off.

Asked if he was worried the Indian capital might also bungle its F1 race, F1 chief executive Ecclestone said in Singapore: "No, it's a different organisation altogether, completely different so I have no worries at all."

"The people who, as you say, are making a shambles, are not the people who are dealing with us for the race," he is quoted by PA Sport.
