French motorsport federation, the FFSA, has said there will be no French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours in 2009 while potential new venues are being considered for the future.

The FFSA said it has received six serious proposals for possible sites, among them three in the Paris region and a redevelopment of the existing Magny-Cours facility.

The FIA has yet to issue an official revision to the 2009 calendar in light of the FFSA's announcement.
