Bernie Ecclestone has now confirmed reports that New Jersey will not be on next year's formula one calendar. Asked about recent reports that said the scheduled race amid the Manhattan skyline would have to be delayed for a second consecutive year, the F1 chief executive said a week ago: "We will not have Mexico and India next year."

But Ecclestone, 83, has now told the Wall Street Journal that the New Jersey street race is off again. He said the postponement, likely to be confirmed with the FIA's publication of the official 2014 calendar on Wednesday, is "for lots and lots and lots of reasons". "We are not satisfied it's going to happen in time," said Ecclestone. "What we're aiming for is 2015."

The newspaper said race promoter Leo Hindery did not return a call seeking comment. And the Bloomberg news agency quoted a spokesman as saying the organisers will comment after the publication of the calendar. (GMM)
