    According to the current owner of Istanbul Park circuit, Vural Ak, The Turkish Grand Prix will return to the calendar in 2017. And it is set to be run in August. He says that they agreed with Bernie Ecclestone and only thing remains are the formal procedures.

    The Turkish Gp was dropped when the government cut it's support to hold the event. Ak says he found new investors from various private companies and they can afford the calendar entry cost.

    While Ak also made such remarks in 2013, he sounds more confident this time. It is also must be noted that he made the track active and restored in recent years. He invested a tremendous amount of money on the trackside complexes and the track itself. Trackdays are organized weekly and many local series use the track. The venue is not neglected as it was used to be.

    Would you be interested in Istanbul Park's return to the calendar?

    No, it'd be yet another GP to ignore due to politics.

    As long as it replaces Azerbaijan, and it is not the same weekend as Le Mans.

    I think you are speaking a little bit too soon. We haven't even had race there, how do you judge?
