F1 boss sets Dec. 9 deadline for 2010 British GP
LONDON (AP)Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has announced a Dec. 9 deadline to decide whether there will be a British Grand Prix next year.
The race that has run every year since 1948 at various circuits looked set to return to Silverstone after Donington Park failed to find the money to stage the event. But talks appear to have stalled, and Ecclestone said on Sunday that the next meeting of the F1 commission would decide whether to take it off the 2010 schedule.
Ecclestone told BBC Radio that there won't be a 2010 British Grand Prix "if there's no contract in place (by Dec. 9)."
