The stories suggested that instead of the Estoril race there would be an Iberian GP at Jerez de la Frontera.

Portuguese sources at Monaco say that all is well and that the work will be done. Planning permission for the changes has been granted and that work will start in 10 days with everything being completed by mid-August.
