Mayor not yet backing Copenhagen Formula 1 plans

Copenhagen is not yet backing plans for a F1 street race in the Danish capital.

Copenhagen is not yet backing plans for a Formula 1 street race in the Danish capital.

It was recently reported that Danish businessman Lars Seier Christensen met with F1 owner Liberty Media about a potential deal, with a circuit to be devised by Hermann Tilke.

However, Copenhagen's Lord Mayor Frank Jensen told BT: "We first must look at how a F1 race is run and how it will affect daily life in Copenhagen.

"This is necessary before we decide whether we - the municipality - can support the project."

Danish driver Kevin Magnussen has expressed excitement at the prospect of a grand prix in the city.
