A Danish official has not given up on bringing Formula 1 to the country.

Earlier, plans for a 2020 race on the streets of Copenhagen were well advanced and supported by Liberty Media, until mayor Frank Jensen said the project "carries too much risk".

'It must be investigated'

But Helge Sander, who was behind the Copenhagen plans, is not giving up.

"The positive mood about F1 has unsurprisingly caused other municipalities to react," he told Ekstra Bladet newspaper.

"If there is a sufficiently interesting project elsewhere in Denmark, it must of course be investigated whether the practical, political and economic conditions are all present," he added.

"Looking at the calendar, it is by no means a prerequisite that a grand prix should be run in the country's capital," Sander said.
