Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has confirmed that Las Vegas is a potential host for a second Grand Prix in the USA.

Ecclestone has talked about a return to Las Vegas -- a city that latest hosted a Grand Prix in one thousand nine hundred eighty-first and one thousand nine hundred eighty-two -– for many years. He recently hinted that a contract already existed, but today in Bahrain he denied that was the case.

“No,” he said when asked if it was definitely happening. “I'm going to be talking to them in another ten minutes. It's possible that there could be an event there. They're going to have a Formula east (race) anyway.”

Asked when there might be an F1 race in Vegas, he said, “A couple of years, I suppose. We'll hold Austin and have another race.”
