Ferrari believes that there is no space on the calendar for two Italian Grands Prix, amid ongoing speculation that Rome could host a one-off race in the future.
Rome has been pushing hard to get a street event put on the calendar over the next few years. But, with Monza having signed a deal earlier this year to host the Italian Grand Prix until 2016, the only way that could happen would be if the nation is allowed to host two events.
Ferrari has a close affinity with Monza, and team principal Stefano Domenicali has made it clear that he does not believe there is now room in the schedule for a country to host two events. This comes with India being added to the F1 calendar next year, and the United States set to return to the schedule in 2012.
"Our position is very clear and leaves no room for interpretation," Domenicali told the official Ferrari website. "Our sport is increasingly expanding the number of countries hosting a grand prix and all the teams are in agreement about that. Therefore it is inevitable that it will no longer be possible to have two races in the same nation. It's not the job of the teams to choose where a grand prix is held, that's up to the commercial rights holder. Everything else is pure speculation."
