Bernie Ecclestone has confirmed that the Spanish Grand Prix will alternate between Barcelona and Valencia, starting with the former in 2013.

The 81-year-old confirmed the news on Saturday in the Formula 1 paddock, telling Reuters: "The [Spanish] race will be here [Barcelona] in 2013 and 2014 in Valencia."

The news had been expected, but negotiations between the two local governments and organisers had delayed such confirmation.

Meanwhile, Ecclestone confirmed news that if Montreal goes ahead with its redevelopment, then it's likely a 10-year deal will be on the cards for the Canadian circuit, meaning it will remain a fixture on the F1 calendar until at least 2024.

"They are going to try and rebuild," he said. "It needs a bit of an upgrade I think. They know what we want to do.

"It will happen. We love Montreal," he added.
