Hockenheim confirms no grand prix in 2017
Hockenheim boss Georg Seiler has confirmed reports the German grand prix will drop off the 2017 calendar.
Reports said that because a race deal could not be struck for 2017, Hockenheim will go and next year's calendar will shrink to 20 grands prix.
Seiler confirmed: "We have noted that a formula one event for Germany is no longer on the 2017 calendar.
"This is regrettable, but not surprising since a date was only reserved and there was no contract for the Hockenheimring."
The circuit chief continued: "There was no offer in which all economic risks were excluded, which was always our condition to be a possible venue for 2017."
