Bernie Ecclestone has dismissed any lingering doubts about issues surrounding September's famous Italian Formula 1 GP at Monza.

It was recently reported that local authorities were investigating the circuit after asphalt problems at the 2012 World Superbike races.

La Gazzetta dello Sport said key officials, including circuit director Enrico Ferrari, were suspended. Prosecutors' claimed the organisers knew the track surface was inadequate.


Circuit operator Sias' Paolo Guaitamacchi said earlier in July 2012: "Before the end of July we will correct the safety of the asphalt in the Parabolica corner. I have spoken with Ecclestone's closest collaborators, reassuring them that the organisation of the Italian GP is definitely not in danger."

La Gazzetta quotes F1 chief executive Ecclestone as confirming: "There are no problems with the Monza GP."
