Bernie: Bye bye Monza after 2016

Bernie: Bye bye Monza after 2016

Monza looks set to lose its place on the calendar with Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone revealing he is unlikely to hand the circuit a new contract.

The track north of Milan has been host to the Italian Grand Prix since 1922 and it has held every race since 1950 with the exception of 1980 when Imola staged it.

Ecclestone and Monza promoters signed a new contract back in 2010 that will run until the end of 2016, but it looks like the circuit will get the chop after that.

"I don't think we'll do another contract, the old one was a disaster for us from a commercial point of view. After 2016, bye bye..." he told Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport.
