[August 14, 2009]  MONTREAL (AP) -- Montreal's mayor says a tentative deal has been reached to return Formula One racing to the city in 2010.

Mayor Gerald Tremblay says the race date and other details still have to be worked out. Tremblay spoke Thursday after F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone recently told a motor sport magazine that Montreal would be back on the racing calendar in 2010.

Montreal was dropped from the 2009 schedule after negotiations with race organizers collapsed. It was the first time in more than 20 years an F1 race was not held in Montreal.
