The mayoress of Valencia has all but confirmed reports the Spanish port city will host a common car launch for F1 teams at the end of January.

Earlier reports said the event would be held at the ultra-modern Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias (City of the Arts and Sciences) complex on January 30 and attended by all teams.

F1 officials recently confirmed the agreement but not the date and location, but Valencia mayoress Rita Barbera told the EFE news agency that the recent news about the event was essentially correct.

She said Valencia was chosen "as a direct consequence" of her attendance at the recent Ferrari World Finals event at the Cheste circuit, also attended by the FOTA chairman Luca di Montezemolo.
