Italian Grand Prix: Teams ready to ‘wait and see’ on 2014

The Korean Grand Prix, widely expected to be dropped from the schedule, remains provisional in an early season slot, while Mexico's return is dependent on the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez being updated to F1 standards.

Promoters of the New Jersey race, meanwhile, insist that they remain confident of returning when the final calendar is produced at the end of the year. Work on the street circuit's infrastructure is ongoing, but the event is continually overshadowed by concerns about its viability. Late last month, Ecclestone told CNN that he had called time on the race, only to backtrack on that claim 24 hours later, admitting that, if the event got its financial act together, F1 would be happy to go there.

“New Jersey, of course, would be fantastic in my opinion - it would be great for the sport, [but] who would you lose?” Whitmarsh commented, “We've all got our personal favourites and our least favourites, but I think it would be very disrespectful to use this platform to voice those personal opinions. I think Bernie's just got to work hard to make sure we've got a good calendar. He generally succeeds one way or another and I suspect he will next year.”
