NEW DELHI , India - Indian Formula 1 GP organisers have dismissed media speculation that they may not host a Formula 1 race next year as "totally baseless and malicious".

A spokesman said: "Our agreement with Formula One Management is to hold F1 races at Buddh International Circuit until 2015, and we are fully committed to do that. There is no reason for us to give up hosting F1 races.”

MORE TO COME

He said the circuit, at Greater Noida to the south of New Delhi, wanted to host more international events including motorcycling.

The 2013 Indian Grand Prix on October 27 will be the 16th race of the 19 round F1 championship. The 2014 calendar has yet to be issued but new races in Russia and New Jersey are due to make their debuts, taking it to a potential 21 rounds if none IS dropped
