Ecclestone: Canada to host GP in 2010

NEWS STORY
04/08/2009

Bernie Ecclestone has said that F1 will return to Canada next season after a one year break.

With the absence of the United States since 2007, when Canada dropped off the GP schedule this year it meant that North America was without an F1 race for the first time since 1958.

However, speaking to Motorsport Aktuell, F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has said that F1 will return to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve next season. "I promise we will be in Montreal in 2010", he told the Swiss publication.

However, it wasn't all good news for F1 fans in North America, for the Englishman says there are no plans for a United States Grand Prix: "Forget Indianapolis," he said. "We are not going back there."

The absence of F1 in North America didn't only go down badly with race fans, the manufacturers were also incensed that the sport chose to turn its back on the industry's traditionally biggest market.

Ironically, Canada's last Grand Prix was won by Robert Kubica for BMW, the German manufacturer having last week announced its decision to leave the sport.
