Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone expecting F1 French GP possibility scheduled next year F1 calendar but the French new sports minister Valerie Fourneyron has raised doubts that it will take place in next season.
“We are still discussing a few points about money around the race, ‘You give me this, I want that’ and so on. But, for me, there is no doubt that we will sort it all out,” the 81-year-old said.
“There was a remarkable acceleration on a potential race return,” she told French radio station RMC.
“We need to have transparency on the issue, on the financial costs and on the seeming lack of concern by the F1 boss (Ecclestone) for the environment.
“There are major accessibility problems to the Castellet circuit (Paul Ricard) and all this deserves more than 10 minutes of debate.
“We are not opposed to the race, but are not sure we will see a race in France next year.”
