Ecclestone wants Spanish hosts to share grand prix
'The best and right option for both of them is the alternation' - Bernie Ecclestone
May 12 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone has revealed he would like Barcelona and Valencia to alternate a single date for the Spanish Grand Prix on F1's annual calendar.
Amid reports the two Spanish cities are close to agreeing a deal, Circuit de Catalunya track boss Salvador Servia played down the likelihood.
"We have already published the ticket prices for 2014," he told Reuters on Saturday.
Clearly, no deal has been struck yet.
"Right now I don't know where the (Spanish) Grand Prix will be next year," F1 chief executive Ecclestone is quoted by the AS sports daily.
"The best and right option for both of them is the alternation."
AS newspaper said Ecclestone met on Friday at the Circuit de Catalunya with Valencia race official Gonzalo Gobert.
