Monza negotiations moved on to Monaco

Monza's long and troubled negotiations over the future of the Italian grand prix have moved onto Monaco.

Corriere della Sera newspaper reports that Angelo Sticchi Damiani, president of the Italian automobile club, met in the Principality with Bernie Ecclestone as Monza tries to secure a new contract beyond September's race.

"We addressed all the issues, directly and indirectly, on the issue of Monza," Damiani said.

"I think one of the major problems have been too many misunderstandings and wrong interpretations. So I explained the situation clearly, indicating who can do what when it comes to the money," he added.

Damiani did not, however, want to comment further on speculation Imola is trying to use the uncertainty to boost its chances of poaching the race from Monza.

"I have already said some unpleasant things in recent days and do not want to repeat them," he insisted.
