Bernie Ecclestone has moved to dismiss any lingering doubts about September's famous Italian grand prix. Recently, we reported that local authorities were investigating the fabled circuit following problems at this year's World Superbike races. La Gazzetta dello Sport said key officials including circuit director Enrico Ferrari were suspended, amid prosecutors' suspicions the organisers knew the track surface was inadequate.

Circuit operator Sias' Paolo Guaitamacchi said earlier this month: "Before the end of July we will correct the safety of the asphalt in the Parabolica. I have spoken with (Bernie) Ecclestone's closest collaborators, reassuring them that the organisation of the Italian grand prix in September is definitely not in danger." And La Gazzetta now quotes F1 chief executive Ecclestone as confirming: "There are no problems with the grand prix at Monza." (GMM)
