We reported this week that the city-state's government only intends to renew the deal beyond 2012 if the F1 chief executive eases his demands for the sanctioning fee.

But Ecclestone has told the Singapore newspaper Today that the negotiations are complete.

"Everything that was in the way of the Singapore Grand Prix continuing for another five years has been cleared," he said.

"I'm happy that this is out of the way because Singapore has been good to F1 and the night race has also been equally good for Singapore," added Ecclestone.
