Report claims Canada GP to return in 2010

Moves to reinstate a Canadian grand prix on the F1 calendar are progressing, according to the French-language newspaper La Presse.

A report said Montreal mayor Gerald Tremblay has approved the spending of city funds on key improvements, to be overseen by Normand Legault, to the pit area of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

It is believed the move may be part of a deal to see Canada return to the formula one calendar as soon as mid 2010.
