The organisers of the Indian Grand Prix have rubbished rumours that the event could be dropped from the calendar after 2014.

Reports in some media outlets claim the organiser, Jaypee Sports International, is suffering financial problems which could see the race cancelled as a result.

A JPSI spokesperson dismissed the "malicious" speculation in a statement on Wednesday.

"Some international news organisations are trying to spread rumours that JPSI may not host 2014 Indian GP. This is totally baseless and malicious.

"Our agreement with Formula One Management is to hold F1 races at Buddh International Circuit (BIC) till 2015, and we are fully committed to do that. There is no reason for us to give up hosting F1 races.

"In fact, JPSI is keen to get some more international car and bike races to BIC, besides F1 and the World Superbike Championship which will be held this year on November 17.

"We are fully committed to promote motorsport in India in collaboration with local government and global and local motorsport organisations."
