No contract yet for 2013 New Jersey race says F1 boss
25 September, 2012
He said that organisers of the street circuit set against Manhattan’s iconic skyline “have not complied with the terms and conditions” of the agreed deal.
“They don’t have a contract,” Ecclestone told the Guardian.
However, New Jersey appeared as a conditional date on the draft 2013 calendar, which was leaked inside the Singapore paddock last weekend.
That schedule was set to be ratified by the FIA on Friday.
Ecclestone warned: “We are pretty close to the final deadline. We’ve got a World Council meeting coming up.
“I think if somebody got behind them it could happen in 2013 because they have come a long way with the circuit.”
