Italy's Autosprint reports that the 51-year-old, whose career ended whilst a Benetton driver in 1990 when his arm was severed in a helicopter crash, wants to be mayor of Siena.

In Tuscany, Italy, Siena is Nannini's birthplace.

Autosprint said the news will shortly be announced officially.

"I will speak when a decision is taken," Nannini is quoted by Corriere Fiorentino.

Nannini's first and only Grand Prix win was the 1989 race at Suzuka, when Ayrton Senna was disqualified after famously colliding with Alain Prost.
