Promoter says New York race on for 2014

A formula one race amid the Manhattan skyline is "definitely" on for 2014, promoter Leo Hindery said.

The Wall Street Journal said Hindery's positive outlook was his first public comments in months, after the 2013 New Jersey street race had to be delayed.

Hindery added that all the agreements with F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone are now in place, not just for June 2014 but "for the next 15 years".

He said his organisation has been "spending like a sailor on leave" to make it happen.
