Valencia would welcome a late June race date on the 2010 Formula One calendar, the mayoress of the Spanish port city Rita Barbera has confirmed.

On an apparent copy of a provisional calendar that did the rounds in the Spa-Francorchamps media centre last weekend, the European Grand Prix venue has been moved from a hot August date this year to June 27 next season.

Barbera told the Spanish news agency EFE that late June is a "magnificent" time for Valencia to host Formula One because it will not be as stiflingly hot.

She said she would support the date change to June 27 "totally".
