2013 return for French Grand Prix?

Plans to revive the French Grand Prix are progressing according to news reports.

The working group put together by prime minister Francois Fillon is reportedly working on a letter of intent to send to F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

The letter will outline the plans to alternate a race annually with Belgium’s famous Spa-Francorchamps circuit, with the French edition to take place at Le Castellet.

L’Equipe said the letter will also propose a date for the French Grand Prix, a budget for the sanctioning fee payable to Ecclestone and outlines for sponsorships.

The report added that France’s goal is to have a grand prix back on the calendar in late August or early September in 2013.
