German F1 GP could be history

Nurburgring has been having various issues including ownership troubles and to top that Hockenheim have not agreed to host the 2015 event.

The Rhein Zeitung newspaper quoted F1 supremo Ecclestone as saying: "I'm as sad as the fans that there will be no Formula One race in Germany."

But the 84-year-old did tell Bild that there was still a glimmer of hope, "We are trying to save it, but it does not look good," he said.
