GREATER NOIDA, India -- Bernie Ecclestone has placed fresh impetus for the return of the French Grand Prix next year stating that Formula 1 was ready for the event to be listed on the 2013 calendar.
Earlier this year, the government in France clarified that it would provide no financial incentives for the race leaving the two circuits – Magny-Cours and Paul Ricard – to stage the potential Grand Prix on its own accord.
With the cancellation of the New Jersey event next year though, the calendar can now accommodate a replacement in the French GP.
"We are ready to sign. We've got a pen, we're ready to sign a contract," Ecclestone said speaking to reporters.
“We can do. If they are ready, we can slot it in the calendar,” the 82-year-old added.
