No potential for a Rome grand prix
Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali has poured cold water on the prospect of Rome staging a grand prix in the near future.
A race through the streets of the Eternal City has long been on the agenda, although logistically there are difficulties.
Domenicali, however, feels Formula One's own logistics will prove a barrier, believing an ever-growing calendar will ensure no country can host two grands prix per year.
With the Italian Grand Prix contracted to Monza through to 2016, Domenicali, said: “Our position is very clear and leaves no room for interpretation.
“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 it will no longer be possible to have two races in the same nation.”
