Canadians have a deal with Bernie
Officials in Montreal have confirmed that they have successfully negotiated a new Formula 1 contract to return the Canadian GP to the FIA calendar. The race is an important foothold in the Americas and F1 teams hope that it will help as the sport tries to do a deal with an American promoter.
The news is no surprise as the race is Canada's biggest single event and Montreal has been suffering from its loss.
It is believed that the new deal will be funded with largely government money.
