Catalunya's F1 future in doubt
DISCUSSING FUTURES: Bernie Ecclestone said the future of the Circuit de Catalunya hasn't been decided.
F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone has admitted that Barcelona could lose the Spanish Formula 1 GP.
Circuit de Catalunya officials rubbished reports that F1's other Spanish host, Valencia, had proposed to replace Barcelona on the calendar from 2012.
"Two weeks ago it looked like Barcelona was not going to have the race any more and not just 2012," Ecclestone told Spain's TV3.
ALTERNATE SPANISH GP VENUES?
He then admitted the possibility that Barcelona and Valencia might annually alternate the Spanish GP. Spa-Francorchamps and France might similarly alternate the hosting rights to a single annual calendar slot.
"The negotiations to alternate Barcelona and Valencia are still on," he told the EFE news agency.
