French GP Oui / non?

FIA wants clarification  The French Grand Prix was due to take place at Magny-Cours in June 2009 but the FIA has expressed its concern over the GP's possible cancellation following the French Motorsport Federation withdrew its financial support

"Up until today we have heard nothing and we are gravely concerned," said a FIA spokesman. "The FIA secretary general has written to the president of the FFSA today to seek an urgent clarification of the situation of the French Grand Prix,"

The FFSA confirmed that all those who had already booked tickets would be reimbursed and apologised for the inconvenience caused by the cancellation.

Cue another track in the desert with suitable fees negotiated by Bernard Charles E - reckon with no races in North America next year as well car manufacturers are going to wonder how many real car markets they are going to race in next year?
