Contrary to reports, race organisers still have not reached a definitive agreement with Formula One officials about reinstating Canada on the 2010 calendar.

We reported this week that, ahead of the European Grand Prix at Valencia, F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone showed team bosses a provisional schedule for next year that featured a round in Montreal.

"The discussions continue and we have good hopes that the Grand Prix will return to Montreal in 2010," city mayor Gerald Tremblay told Radio Canada.

"There is still no agreement. We have always said very clearly that we prefer if Montreal does not appear in the provisional calendar so long as the agreement is not finalised," he added.
