Formula One-style motor racing is never likely to be seen at the Olympics.

That is the claim of current International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Jacques Rogge.

"The most important thing must be the man, not the machine," the Belgian said in an interview with Germany's SID news agency.

"I see no real chance that Sebastian Vettel will be in the race for a gold medal," added Rogge.
