Canadian Grand Prix returns to F1 calendar

1:40 pm on 28 November 2009

The Canadian Grand Prix will return to the Formula One calendar next season after a financial package was agreed to support the event.

The governments of Canada and the Quebec region along with Montreal and the city's tourism board announced a deal of just over $21 million annual investment over five years.

The race has been provisionally penned in for June 11-13 on the Formula One calendar for the 2010 season.

Canada was not included in the 2009 season due to a dispute between local organisers, Grand Prix F1 du Canada and Formula One Administration (FOA) which holds the commercial rights to the F1 series.
