    Vijay Mallya no longer India's representative at FIA

    Sahara Force India F1 team boss Vijay Mallya has stepped down as Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India’s (FMSCI) top representative at the Federation International deÍ Automobile (FIA), according to an official announcement.

    The 61-year-old tycoon was removed from his FMSCI chairman position back in March 2017, but only resigned from his FIA post before the last World Motor Sports Council (WMSC) meeting held in June. He is currently facing deportation to India over unpaid debts for Kingfisher Airlines.

    It won’t be until December 2017 that FMSCI can elect its next representative to the FIA. The Indian motorsport body has also taken down the names of Mallya, along with his deputy and ex-FMSCI boss, Vicky Chandhok, as its representatives to the FIA.

    Mallya had, in the recent past, suggested renaming Force India, his Formula One team, to Force One in a bid to open up more sponsorship options.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.

    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
