Bernie Ecclestone has revealed that a grand prix in Thailand is likely to be added to the Formula One calendar in 2015.
Kanokphand Chulakasem, Governor of the Sports Authority of Thailand, said in October that he was working with F1 organisers to bring a race to the country and it appears that he has been successful.
"They say (it will be held in) 2014 and I say 2015. It is serious and it is good," Ecclestone is quoted as saying by the Wall Street Journal.
It has been reported that 60 percent of the annual fee will be covered by the Thailand government with drinks companies Red Bull and Singha contributing the remainder.
New Jersey and Russia are already set to be added to schedule in 2014 and should Thailand come on board, further pressure will be placed on current circuits to keep their places if the cap of 20 races is to be adhered to.
