Spa still in jeopardy

The 2006 Belgian Formula One Grand Prix is in jeopardy because of major delays in improvements to the Spa Francorchamps circuit, the Belgian press reported on Saturday.

The enlarging of existing stands, the construction of new pit lanes and the modification of a chicane need to be done before the September 17th race.

Between 15 and 20 million euros will be allocated for the work which has been demanded by Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone, la Derniere Heure/Les Sports newspaper said.

"We have to complete the work demanded by Ecclestone. We realize the reality (that the race could be cancelled) but we will do all we can so that it can go ahead," economy minister Jean-Claude Marcourt told La Derniere Heure.
