'German Grand Prix remains at Nürburgring'
24 December 2012 – The 2013 German Grand Prix will remain at the Nürburgring. This is according to the Bild newspaper, which claims a final agreement has now been reached between the circuits owners and Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.
After the circuit filed for bankruptcy earlier in the year, uncertainty rose over the possibility of a race at the circuit. However, a solution has now been found, with Nürburgring Automotive GmbH (NAG) spokesman Karl-Heinz Steinkühler stating: "The F1 world has long known that the July 7 race in 2013 will run at the Nürburgring."
Earlier this month, feeder categories GP2 and GP3 confirmed F1-supporting events at the Nürburgring. The Formula 1 deal is expected to be signed in the new year.
