Ecclestone wants Spa-Francorchamps on the calendar every two years

By on

In an interview with the magazine 'Motorsport Aktuell', Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone says that he is planning a race at Spa-Francorchamps every two years. In the same interview, Ecclestone confirms that the Canadian GP will return to the F1 calendar in 2010.

Speaking out on his ideas for the Belgian Grand Prix at the historic venue of Spa-Francorchamps, Ecclestone said: "We would alternatively race at Spa-Francorchamps and Nürburgring. The two are practically neighbours."

At the moment, Nürburgring and Hockenheimring split the organisation for the German Grand Prix. However, Ecclestone wants to shift this procedure to Spa-Francorchamps and Nürburgring as he wants Hockenheim to get a more prominent spot on the F1 calendar.

In the interview Ecclestone speaks about his future plans for F1. He announced the return of the Canadian GP on the calendar in 2010, but stated that for now there will be no new American race. The Briton also said that from 2011 India will have a GP and that he has Korea on his wish list. Russia however does not have to count on a race any day soon.
