article-2340292-1A47B406000005DC-706_634x390Formula 1 commercial right holder Bernie Ecclestone says that Formula 1 wants Grand Prix of America for a permanent street circuit category.

Even as he added, the venue for the proposed Grand Prix of America in New Jersey could change. A change of location is not the only likely result of the race organisers’ break their F1 contract.

Initially the sport planned race to be held the banks of the Hudson River with the surroundings of the Manhattan skyline, a total 3.2-mile street circuit.

The New Jersey Grand Prix is the only scheduled event to be dropped from the 2014 calendar twice and Ecclestone has been running out of patience with the race supporter Leo Hindery Jr.

“We looked at a permanent circuit in that area three years ago,” Ecclestone told .

“[If the race goes ahead, the promoter] may not be Hindery. Maybe the venue will be a little bit different.”

Also some news reported that, race organisers need to find £61m ($100m) in order to get the green light and this has been a long-standing uncertain block.

Preliminary circuit profile

Name: The Port Imperial Street Circuit
Location: Township of Weehawken and West New York, Hudson County, New Jersey
Lap Distance: 3.2-mile (5.1 km)
Elevation Change: 150 feet
Turns: 19
Highlights: Along and above the banks of the Hudson River on public streets overlooking the NYC skyline.
