Bernie Ecclestone insists that the German GP will take place as scheduled at the Nurburgring on July 7.
The track alternates with Hockenheim for the right to hold the race but financial problems – the fallout of a misguided attempt at creating a Nurburgring motor racing theme park – meant that the race has been in limbo since the 2013 schedule was announced, with suggestions that it might return to Hockenheim.
However Ecclestone has told Reuters that the race should go ahead as planned, saying: “It should be the Nurburgring and we are trying to make it happen. I’m talking with them today.”
Ecclestone also said that the calendar will stick at 19 races, which means that his attempt to revive the Turkish GP has failed.
That in turn means that Hungary will be the only race to take place between Germany on July 7 and Belgium at the end of August.
