Rome ‘has F1 race deal’ – Gazzetta

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.

However the race’s official site has gone blank and there’s nothing from their Twitter feed either. See below for more details on the circuit plans.
