the head of The Hockenheim circuit, Georg Seiler, has confirmed that the German Grand Prix will not be held in 2017 due to the lack of agreement between the circuit and Bernie Ecclestone.
According to Seiler in statements collected by Auto Bild, “there has not been an offer that would avoid all of the economic risks. It is disappointing, but it is not a surprise, especially since the Grand Prize was subject to confirmation and there will be no Formula 1 at Hockenheim”.
Bernie Ecclestone said last month that had serious doubts about the completion of the agreement despite the fact that we were offering to Hockenheim much more favorable conditions that the rest of european circuits. Therefore, the calendar of 2017 happens to have 20 Great Prizes, and Hungary will host the last event before the summer break. This calendar must be ratified definitely the next November 30.
