NO GRACIAS: Barcelona will contest the proposed alternating of the Spanish GP with Valencia.

MADRID, Spain - Barcelona has moved to secure its annual spot on the F1 calendar and it doesn't include alternating with Valencia.

With European GP host Valencia dropped from the 2013 schedule, it was expected that both Spain's F1 cities would move to alternating annually but El Mundo Deportivo newspaper reports that the Catalunya circuit has signed an agreement with the public institution Diputacion Provincial de Barcelona to provide new funding to the track.

'NO DESIRE'

"We have a contract to host the GP de Espana until 2016," said Catalunya chief Vincente Aguilera, "and we want to keep it. Indeed, we are open to negotiating an extension until 2020 with the same conditions."

Aguilera told AS newspaper: "We have no desire to alternate. We cannot speak for Valencia, which has agreements with (Bernie) Ecclestone, about which we have nothing to say."
