New Monza deal set for Friday announcement

A day and time has been set for the announcement of Monza's new Italian grand prix deal.

La Gazzetta dello Sport said F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, Italian officials and even FIA president Jean Todt will attend the signing of the new three-year contract at 3pm on Friday.

"We worked hard, but with important teamwork we defined the renewal of the contract with Bernie Ecclestone for the Monza grand prix," Italian automobile club (Aci) chief Angelo Sticchi Damiani said.

However, there could still be controversy laying down the road, as Imola is taking legal action against the Aci for not sanctioning its bid for the race.

"It is understand that the Aci president intends to proceed with the signature on a potentially flawed contract before the decision of the courts," a statement read.
