MONZA TRACK PROBLEMS: F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone says Monza is all ready for the 2012 Italian F1 GP.

LONDON, England - Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has been told all is well with Monza's organisation of the famous Italian Formula 1 Grand Prix in September.

Last month, it was reported that local authorities were investigating the fabled circuit after some problems occurred at this year's World Superbike races.


La Gazzetta dello Sport, a sports publication, said prosecutors were suspicious and claimed the organisers knew ahead of time that the track surface was inadequate.

The newspaper has now reported that key officials, including circuit director Enrico Ferrari, have been suspended. Wiretaps have reportedly proved that the officials deliberately ignored the risk that the sub-standard asphalt at the Parabolica corner could cause.

Circuit operator Sias' Paolo Guaitamacchi has said that management was aware of the asphalt problems but kept it quiet from the drivers, teams and race officials.

"Before the end of July we will correct the safety of the asphalt in the Parabolica,” he said. "I have spoken with (Bernie) Ecclestone's closest collaborators, reassuring them that the organisation of the Italian grand prix in September is definitely not in danger."
