F1 Monza 2016 Goodbye "Temple of Speed"?
Monza 2016 Grand Prix of Italy is a must attend event, the third permanent circuit combining speed with skill. The greatest drivers competed at Monza Formula1 since the '50s on the famous banked oval; along its straights and fast corners the recent F1 speed reaches 370 km/h.
Mercedes top driver, Lewis Hamilton recently said : I love Monza, it's a fascinating track on which everyone wants to win. Every once in a while I contact Ferrari, but only because I love their street cars. I'm really confortable in Mercedes and I don't want to go anywhere else. I love Senna, who managed to become a star without ever driving a Ferrari.
Mr. Ecclestone, when asked by Gazzetta dello Sport about what the future of Monza on the calendar, said: "I don't think we'll do another contract, as the old one has been disastrous for us from a commercial point of view."
So is this a goodbye to Monza after 2016?
Monza organizers are prepared to pay 15 million euros ($17 million) per year to keep the race through 2020 — far off the 25 million euros ($28 million) that organizers in Austria and Belgium pay for their races, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport.
