Bernie: Turkey could return

Bernie: Turkey could return

Bernie Ecclestone says Turkey could yet return to the Formula One but only if "the problem" over the hosting fee is resolved.

Turkey, which made its Formula One debut back in 2005, was dropped from this year's calendar after the government and Eclcestone failed to reach a new deal.

However, the F1 supremo has refused to write off the chance of the Istanbul Park circuit making a return in the future.

"I was sorry when the contract ended, but it's always possible to go back to Turkey," ESPNF1 reports Ecclestone as having told Turkish newspaper Haberturk.

"I was sorry because it's a great track and Istanbul is a great city.

"Both the teams and the FIA were very happy to be in Istanbul... If the problem with the government (over the hosting fee) can be resolved, then Turkey could return to the calendar."
