Sunday announcement for French GP return

By on Sunday, August 28, 2011

The return of the French grand prix could be announced just before Sunday's race at Spa-Francorchamps.

It is believed that Bernie Ecclestone's Paul Ricard circuit will be named as F1's new French venue, to annually alternate the hosting rights with Belgium.

France's autohebdo.fr reports that Gilles Dufaigneux, who is heading French prime minister Francois Fillon's push for a formula one comeback, is at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend.

The report said he is set to meet on Sunday with Bernie Ecclestone, who has rushed to the Belgian circuit after the wedding in Rome of his daughter Petra.
