London's Times newspaper said the potential candidate is David Ward, who worked alongside Frenchman Todt's predecessor Max Mosley.

Ward is currently the director-general of the FIA foundation for the automobile and society.

"This is not what I intended nor what I wanted, but I am certainly thinking about (standing) because it is important to have a debate," he is quoted as saying.
