The Government of Catalunya is reconsidering hosting major motor sport events because of its bad state of finances.
“We may reconsider holding Formula One and motorcycling grand prix here. It is not clear whether we can do so in the current climate,” Catalan economy minister Andreu Mas-Colell said.
“It is not the first thing we will reconsider, but in times like these we have to look line by line at what we are spending money on,” he said.
The track has a contract with Formula One until 2016.
This news breaks just DAYS after the other spanish race on the calender, The Valencia circuit, has announced that it will ask Bernie Ecclestone for a reduction in the price it pays to stage an F1 race.
