Alain Prost, the quadruple world champion, is hopeful France host another Formula One race next season.
It has been five years since France last host an F1 race and both Magny Cours and Paul Ricard had been linked to hosting a 2013 Grand Prix.
“I still read in the press that there are opportunities for 2013,” Prost, who was involved in the talks, is quoted by France’s Sport24. “It is of course impossible. However, for 2014, there are possible openings (for France).
“There are a few grands prix in doubt but also many new projects considered by (Bernie) Ecclestone,” said Prost.
