Italian Grand Prix at risk

The Local Authorities of Monza, where the Grand Prix of Italy has traditionally been held, are negotiating with FIA, the International Automobile Federation, to avoid the cancellation of the historic race.
The reason is simple: FIA wants more money. The Federation is not going to spare the race just for historic reasons, other traditional Gran Prix were already cancelled.
The Italian Authorities, however, can count on the support of the Government of Lombardy, a very rich region, and of Ferrari, whose participation to the Formula 1 championship is not irrelevant.
