No Rome After All



Rome’s hopes of holding a Formula One race through its streets from 2013 looked dead on Thursday unless organisers can persuade the sport’s ruling body to alternate the race with Monza’s Italian Grand Prix.  According to Bernie Ecclestone:

“The teams want to keep a maximum of 20 races in a year with more appointments in the USA,” Ecclestone told [Mayor] Gianni Alemanno in a letter, Ansa news agency reported Thursday. “Therefore for now it would be impossible to program another Grand Prix in Italy. However, if Monza was taken off the calendar or if it was possible to alternate between Monza and Rome, that could be acceptable and I could try to obtain that.”
