Bernie Ecclestone has taken all the hopes of a home race for German Formula One fans this season. The German Grand Prix is currently dead,”the Formula One boss told the’Independent’.” There is not much more we can do.”
Actually, the German GP is supposed to take place on the Nuremberg ring on July 19th. But negotiations have been stalling for weeks because operators are in financial difficulties. They don’t want to print Ecclestone’s entry fee. In recent years, the race has always caused losses. A transfer to the Hockenheimring is considered unrealistic.
Nico Hullkenberg was angry about the decision: “Too bad not to say shit! We have three German drivers and a German manufacturer in formula 1. There is a lot of history in it,”says the Force India pilot.
