Feb.26 (GMM) Alain Prost, the quadruple world champion, is hopeful France could finally return to the F1 calendar next year.
"I still read in the press that there are opportunities for 2013," Prost, who was involved in the talks, is quoted by France's Sport24.
"It is of course impossible. However, for 2014, there are possible openings (for France).
"There are a few Grands Prix in doubt but also many new projects considered by (Bernie) Ecclestone," said Prost.
