Aug.09 – Turkish GP official’s say that discussions are continuing with F1 supreme Bernie Ecclestone for the race to remain on the F1 schedule and that they remain expecting of winning a official pardon for 2012 following the race was dropped from next year’s proposed F1 calendar.

Regardless of the rumor, Ferruh Gundogan, Director of SMEs Department in the Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, insists that nothing has been concluded, and the circuit is still hopeful it will win a reprieve for 2012.

“Certainly we are hopeful about the 2012 Turkish GP, but it depends on the result of ongoing negotiations,” Gundogan told Autosport. Actually, [the] ultimate 2012 Formula 1 calendar has not been declared yet. Negotiations between the Turkish Ministry of Sports and FOA are ongoing.

“It is hardly possible to say that the Turkish GP has dismissed the opportunity.”

Ferruh Gundogan said that the Ministry of Sport go on to place a high value on hosting an Formula 1 grand prix, and that it was searching for ways to expand the commercial reach of the sport within the country as a means of trying to settle negotiations.

“As president of the investor institution, I paid effort to inform the Turkish government and audience about the importance of Formula 1. Sharing the same objectives, the sportife authorities are in close contact with the Ministry of Sport and have high praise of Formula 1 racing.

“We are discussing alternatives to expand the commercial volume of Formula One as an incentive to settle negotiations.”
