That is the claim of Nicolas Deschaux, the president of the country's motor sport federation who admitted concern the deal to put Paul Ricard on the 2013 calendar is not yet done.

France has been missing from the calendar since Magny-Cours last held a Grand Prix in 2008, but efforts have been made to annually alternate a race between Paul Ricard - a track in Le Castellet, near Marseille - and Belgium's fabled Spa Francorchamps.

Deschaux told RMC the project needs to reach the finish-line within three weeks.

"We have always been working very hard," he said. "We have arrived in the home stretch, where either we come to finalise within three weeks, or we will go on a path that forces us to postpone."
