The FIA is planning to launch an official Hall of Fame later this year to help celebrate motor racing's most famous names of the past and present.
Despite a rich history, the governing body has never previously sanctioned an idea that has been adopted by many other sports around the world.
However, president Jean Todt has revealed that an FIA Hall of Fame will be launched in Paris and Geneva before the end of this year.
"In December this year we will open an FIA Hall of Fame," explained Todt. "It is something that we have been working on now for two or three years.
"We will have one Hall of Fame in Paris and one in Geneva, but when you see some of the people who could be represented – some have unfortunately passed away, but when you see the images around it, it is fascinating."
