Turkey will not release any funds for the return of the Turkish Grand Prix to the Formula One schedule next year, the sports minister was quoted as saying on Thursday.

The Turkish Automobile Federation (Tosfed) announced that the Turkish GP could return to the F1 schedule next year provided that organisers can reach agreement with paymaster Bernie Ecclestone.
