Formula One Group chief executive Chase Carey insists that plans for an F1 Miami Grand Prix have not been scrapped.
In late September, the Miami city commission voted to indefinitely defer the plans.
And instead of waiting on the local government, F1 owner Liberty Media last week announced a new Grand Prix in Vietnam for 2020. That is despite Bernie Ecclestone telling Germany's RTL that, prior to him being ousted as F1 chief executive, he chose against the Vietnam plans.
Carey says he has not given up on Miami.
"The plan is to have a second race in the U.S.," he is quoted by European media outlet Speed Week. "But we are not just dealing with Miami, even if we are convinced that it would be a great project. The negotiations are going on. When it comes to street circuits there are many interests that need to come together and it takes time."
