The Korean Grand Prix’s organizers have warned that the loss-making event is under threat of cancellation unless Formula One Management Ltd. and Bernie Ecclestone give them a cheaper contract.

Park told Autosport magazine that South Korea was keen to keep its GP, but said the event’s future depended on whether Ecclestone would let them negotiate a new (presumably much cheaper) deal.
