The French Le Journal Du Dimanche newspaper reports the possibility of the famous Belgian race alternating annually with a circuit in France.

"I've been asked about it earlier this year by French officials," admitted Belgian GP promoter Andre Maes.

"This may be interesting, so I am waiting for further news," he said.

The Belgian GP has admitted to worrying about being priced out of F1 due to rising race sanctioning fees.

French Grand Prix host Magny-Cours dropped off the calendar after the 2008 season due to "economic problems".
