Former world champion and current BRDC president Damon Hill believes FIA president Max Mosley should reconsider his position after the revelations about his private life.
Several people have urged Mosley to quit since the revelations in the News of the World newspaper, and the governing body's chief will face a vote of confidence later this year.
Hill believes that, even leaving his private life aside, Mosley should reconsider his position for the sake of the sport's image.
"None of us wants to be moralising about individuals, but there has to be an element here to do with the image of the sport, and the ability of the premier representative of the sport in the world to continue to engage with a politic concerned about values," Hill was quoted as saying by the Times newspaper.
"It's a practical issue, but it's also a marketing issue.
"Businesses connected with the sport want a positive image, and politicians want to engage with it because they know motorsport people support those values."
Despite the calls for resignation, Mosley has made it clear he had no plans to step down and said he had done nothing wrong.
Mosley will face the vote of confidence in a meeting on June 3 in Paris.
