Indian GP boss leaves post

Indian GP boss quits post to head for Abu Dhabi
Mark Hughes, the boss of the new Indian Grand Prix, has quit his role to take up a new position in Abu Dhabi.

Hughes had been in charge of the project being worked on by promoters the Jaypee Group as India prepares to host its first F1 event on a new circuit being constructed near the capital city Delhi.

However, according to a report by AFP, Hughes elected to quit his role last month for personal reasons and has now been replaced by Azhar Ghazili, who previously worked as an organiser for the Malaysian GP at Sepang.

"Mr Ghazali is a very capable man,” a Jaypee spokesman said, “and he's more than making up for Mr Hughes's absence."

Hughes himself revealed that, although he is now working with organisers of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, he is still advising the Jaypee Group in regards to the Indian GP.
