Montreal set for official green light

Post by maxdamage » Fri Nov 27, 2009 11:31 pm

Official confirmation of Canada's return to the Formula One calendar for 2010 is expected this week, according to the French-language La Presse newspaper.

The Montreal event has appeared with a June 13 date on provisional versions of next year's schedule, while Bernie Ecclestone and event organisers have been finalising the contract.

The newspaper said the city and the Quebec government could give the green light on Wednesday, preceding an official announcement towards the end of the week.

It is reported that Ecclestone and the race negotiators have now finished their talks and the agreement can be signed off during a meeting of Montreal's executive committee on Wednesday.

Quebec's intergovernmental affairs secretariat is expected to agree on the same day, "and this should be a formality", the office is quoted as confirming.

The new promoter of Canada's F1 race is Francois Dumontier, head of Octane Management.
