WEEHAWKEN, WEST NEW YORK AND BEYOND – CEO of Formula One Management Bernie Ecclestone expressed concerns that the Formula One Grand Prix scheduled to run in Weehawken and West New York in 2013 may be delayed due to outstanding contracts and funding issues, ESPN reported Wednesday.
"We don't comment on our contractual relationship with Formula One or its details,” spokesman Steve Sigmund said in statement sent to The Reporter by Global Strategy Group’s Communications Vice President Alex Howe. “We are on track for a June 2013 race, with all course engineering and construction progressing precisely on schedule, a strong management team in place, and strong ongoing support from New Jersey, New York City and the local communities involved. We are very confident that the 2013 F1 Grand Prix of America at Port Imperial will be a great event." – Gennarose Pope
