ABU DHABI (REUTERS) - Formula One races in Mexico and New Jersey are unlikely to happen next year, the sport's commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone told Reuters on Sunday.

Both events were on a 22-race calendar published in September but the 83-year-old, speaking at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, doubted they would stay on a final version due to be approved by the sport's governing body next month.

"I would doubt whether it's going to happen," the British billionaire said when asked about New Jersey, whose debut has already been postponed once.

That June 1 race is listed as part of a "triple header" on successive weekends in between Monaco and Canada.
