GRAN PREMIO DE INDIAFormula One Indian Grand Prix maybe drop from 2014 season F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has told Reuters. Even as some reports says, Austria’s will return to the 2014 F1 calendar and also Russia plans to enter next season F1 calendar.

“Is India going to happen next year? Probably not,” he said at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

When the source asked what the problem was with the race at Greater Noida, near New Delhi, F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone replied: “Very political.”

Jaypee spokesman Askari Zaidi rejected the media speculation about next year’s race as “totally baseless and malicious”, hoped things will be sorted out.

“We have not got anything in writing from the Formula One management regarding the status of the 2014 Indian Grand Prix,” Askari Zaidi told Reuters.

“We are keen that Formula One races take place in India at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) till our contract is in operation that is 2015.”

Last week Bernie Ecclestone has stated that the F1 calendar will be restricted at 20 races, with the comeback of the Austrian Grand Prix. The effect comes out the current venue possibly dropped for the next season.
