The former chief executive of drinks giant Diageo is being lined up to be chairman of the Formula One board.

If Paul Walsh is appointed, it could signal the beginning of the end of Bernie Ecclestone’s control of the motorsport.

Sky News reported that a board meeting is scheduled for next week to discuss replacing Peter Brabeck, who has been undergoing several months of medical treatment.
