3 facts for the future 01 - Spa, Singapore and Webber


1. Minister of Economy of Wallonia(southern region of Belgium) has negotiate a contract extension for the years 2013, 2014 and 2015 where there will be a race at SPA. He said that the negotiations were not difficult, but for a while there was a posibility to alternate with France but didn't happen. It's good to know that historical races are secured (like Spa-Francorchamps), but for now are missing: Istanbul Park and Circuit de Catalunya to be present every year...
2. Singapore had extended their current deal in F1 until 2017 F1 season, being the only night race in Calendar with a feasibility study reviewing that the benefits of continuing with the race are beyond the first agreement(2010)
3. Red Bull have announced that Mark Webber‘s contract has been extended to run until the end of 2013. The Australian revealed that he had been in talks with Ferrari for next season, but said that, in the end, signing for Red Bull was an easy choice and I think he should add that he don't want to be teammate with Fernando Alonso
