Ongoing negotiations between the President of ACI and Ecclestone appear to be resolved although said president had this to say about his dealings with Mr E.
“It’s a complex situation, we struggled and we are confronted with the most skilled negotiator in the world.”
Monza promoter Sias whose task is negotiating with Mr E about appears to have to be negotiating “a contract of four instead of seven years”. The parties have been at the negotiation table during the conference presentation of Rally Italy Sardinia 2016.
Sticchi Damiani continues: “The situation of the Monza GP is very complex, it is a battle we have to fight because Italy can not and should not lose Formula 1. We hope there might be a convergence on this without issues and, unfortunately, the likely result is an increase in costs to host”.
Obviously the dealings have left a sour taste in the mouth as Damiani reveals that Ecclestone does not like to have a single person to deal with, but deals with as many parties as possible and so creates an auction in order get the best result possible for himself.
