Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport claims a deal is in place for F1 to race on the streets of Rome.
It reports race organiser Maurizio Flammini has done a deal with Bernie Ecclestone. Earlier this year it emerged the venue was seeking an F1 race for 2012.
A race deal for 2012 would be consistent with F1′s growth which has seen at least one new event added per year recently: Valencia and Singapore in 2008, Abu Dhabi in 2009, South Korea next year and India in 2011.
