Bernie: `Indian GP still on the cards`

Plans for an Indian GP are still on track despite reports to the contrary, according to Bernie Ecclestone.

India is expected to host its inaugural F1 grand prix in 2009. However, as yet funding has not been put in place and neither has a definite layout being decided on. This led to reports that Ecclestone had given the Indian Olympic Association until the end of this month to put plans in motion or forget about holding a race in two years' time. The F1 supremo, though, has denied this saying: "I hope within the next two years we will be racing in India."

The 76-year-old also downplayed claims that India is not yet ready to host an event of this magnitude. "India is the same as everywhere else in the world," he told CNBC-TV18. "We race all over the world, so why not in India?"
