When the FIA released the 2013 Formula 1 Calendar, one Grand Prix weekend was left unconfirmed. A few tracks have been linked with this Grand Prix weekend such as the Turkish Grand Prix and the French Grand Prix.

There has been a connection between this Grand Prix weekend and the possibilty of another Portuguese Grand Prix. The Grand Prix would be held at the Algarve Circuit in Portimao.

Paulo Pinheiro, the CEO of the Portimao, said that: "At this moment we are not making any comments on this news. Of course that all circuits in the world would like to host a F1 race. Let's talk next week," in an exclusive interview with F1Today.net.

If Formula 1 does head to Portugal for the 10th Grand Prix of the 2013 season, it will be the first time since 1996.
