As was predicted last Friday, Canada's return to the Formula One calendar in 2010 was announced officially.

The confirmation, guaranteeing annual Canadian Grands Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve between 2010 and 2014, occurred during a press conference in Montreal.

"The return of Formula One to Montreal attests to our sustained efforts and determination," said the city's mayor Gerald Tremblay in a statement.

"This win-win deal falls in line with the terms we set and the taxpayer's ability to pay and will create stability for the next five years," he added.
