New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a news conference at the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal in New Jersey October 25, 2011 that New Jersey will play host to Formula One beginning of 2013.

CLARY/AFP/Getty Images)Sep.25 (GMM) New Jersey might not host a grand prix as supposedly scheduled for next year, according to F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

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.”
