Plans are still afoot to return Formula One to Argentina, but a race next year is unlikely, Bernie Ecclestone admitted on Sunday.

We have reported this year that figures in the South American country are interested in organising a Grand Prix, but F1 chief executive Ecclestone has told them the Autodromo Juan y Oscar Galvez in Buenos Aires, not used for F1 since 1998, is no longer up to scratch.

The 78-year-old Briton told Germany's DPA news agency at Valencia: "We are in discussions about it. Things probably won't be in place in time for 2010 but we are in talks about it."
