Four-time world champion Alain Prost is not ruling out working together with Jean Todt if the former Ferrari boss is chosen as FIA president.
Todt announced he will stand for the presidency of the FIA in October, with former world rally champion Ari Vatanen so far his only confirmed opponent.
Prost believes Todt is the right man for the post, and he admitted he would consider working with him if the opportunity arose.
"Jean Todt would be an excellent president, even though at the moment the F1 teams seem unhappy about his candidature," Prost was quoted as saying by Autosprint magazine.
"If there are the conditions to justify a role in the FIA for me, then it would be with F1 and sport in general. Working next to Todt, why not? This is a possibility we've talked about.
"We'll see in the upcoming months."
