Ecclestone has told the Italian media that the famous circuit, which has hosted every Italian Grand Prix with the exception of the 1980 event, that it won't be on the calendar next season if it doesn't stump up the cash. Ivan Capelli - who is now president of the ACI and therefore oversees the circuit - stated that it was poised to receive some $21million worth of investment from the regional government, and was attempting to secure tax breaks, to help secure the race until 2020. "It's a very simple situation," Ecclestone explained. "Two years ago I made a deal with one of the people who are no longer involved. "For Monza we applied the same economic conditions of the other European circuits. All done, all good, we shook hands, but after that meeting nothing happened. "There is a contract for the 2015 race, but not for future seasons. "Yes, Monza is a part of F1 history, but they must pay," Ecclestone asserted. Capelli admitted he would meet with Ecclestone over the Monaco Grand Prix weekend to discuss the future of the event in more detail, a deal that is expected to cost in the region of $25million per year. Should the Italian race disappear Ecclestone is in favour of replacing it with a race in Baku, Azebeijan. 9 GPWEEK.com // 9 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
