  1. This sucks..

    The mayor of Montreal on Tuesday clarified that no deal to reinstate the Canadian Grand Prix in 2010 has been completed.

    F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone was earlier quoted by the Swiss magazine Motorsport Aktuell as saying "I promise we will be in Montreal in 2010."

    However Mayor Gerald Tremblay told French language radio RDS that negotiations are still ongoing, and that Ecclestone has not modified his previous unacceptable offer.

    Ecclestone also said on Tuesday that while an F1 return to Indianapolis is not on the cards, his sport could host a United States Grand Prix somewhere else "the year after (2011)."

  2. As long as it's because they are taking a stand against Bernie's bullshit, I'm fine with it.

    Well kind of
  3. It's simply Bernie throwing his weight around in negotiation.
    He says "Montreal will be back next year" fans rejoice, Montreal says no, fans blame Montreal, Montreal begrudgingly accepts deal.
