F1 Will Return To Canada – Indy GP Finished For Good

Bernie Ecclestone has today said that Formula One will definitely be returning to Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix in 2010.

Montreal is a very popular circuit with the drivers and fans, producing smoe of the most exciting races in a season, however it was absent from the 2009 calendar due to on-going disputes with promoters of the event and Ecclestone himself.

It left F1 without a North Amercian Grand Prix.

“I promise we will be in Montreal in 2010,” he told Switzerland’s Motorsport Aktuell. “Everyone in Formula One loves the Canadian Grand Prix.”

However while Canada might be back to secure NAmerican fans support, he ruled out a return to Indianapolis and the United States Grand Prix permanently.

“Forget Indianapolis. We’re not going back there,” he added.

    Yo….you may want to alter that last paragraph a bit. WHile Bernie ruled out a return to Indianapolis (no suprise- that had bene the case ever since 2007) he diden’t completely shut out a future USGP. Over here we’re all getting sick of his lines about looking at it and being close to a deal, but the teams and sponsors want it, the majority of fans want it, and hopefully it will happen soon- very soon!
