Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone says he will not consider changing the date of the United States Grand Prix next year because of concerns of overcrowding in Austin, which will also host a University of Texas football game on the same date.

Ecclestone said that organizers are welcome to reschedule the Nov. 17 college game if they feel having both events on same weekend will cause problems.

"The calendar is done and has been approved," Ecclestone told The Associated Press on Sunday at the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo. "If they want to change the college game, it has nothing to do with me."

There could be concerns of overcrowding, lack of hotel rooms and increased traffic if the race and the football game happen on the same day.

"I don't mind if they change the date of the college game," he said, adding that he had no idea it was scheduled.

Ecclestone said that "at the moment" there hasn't be progress made with the negotiations for the New Jersey GP, which was initially scheduled for next year but has been postponed until 2014.
