Sidhartha Mallya, the son of Force India
team owner Vijay Mallya, has revealed that he plans to move into F1 management in future- even though he concedes that 'watching a car go around for 65 laps is hopelessly boring'.
The 24-year-old is already a company director of the family-owned company United Breweries and runs the Indian Premier League cricket team Royal Challengers.
However, his links to F1 through his father have led to speculation that Mallya could follow him into team management although it appears it won't be something that happens any time soon.
"It's easier to manage a cricket team than F1,” he told the Deccan Times
“The IPL is a short season, but the F1 calendar is spread across nine months.
"To get the team in shape is a lot of hard work and energy. Due to my commitments within the UB group, I am unable to dedicate 100 per cent to racing at present.
"The transition into F1 will happen in the future. After seeing the big-hitting and thrill-a-minute twenty 20 matches, watching a car go around the circuit for about 65 laps is hopelessly boring."
