Shadow over Barcelona F1 race

CIRCUIT DE CATALUNYA: Its 2012 F1 GP is also under threat.

Catalonia's economics minister Andreu Mas-Colell told Rac1 radio that the situation for Barcelona's Spanish GP was "the same as in Valencia".


"In the present conditions we have to look line-by-line at how we are spending money," the minister said, referring to Europe's economic crisis. "We've spent a lot on F1 and at the moment it's unclear what we can afford."

But the sports newspaper Marca cited sources at the Circuit de Catalunya as saying the F1 and MotoGP races scheduled for 2012 were "guaranteed" at least.

Beyond that, Mas-Colell insisted, "there are contracts that are more expensive to maintain than to break".
