The Nürburgring is set to be confirmed as the host of this year's German Grand Prix, with Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone confident of finalising a new deal. The 82-year-old, who also explained that the 2013 calendar will feature 19 races after Turkey's failed bid to return, believes an agreement can be reached this week.
"It should be the Nürburgring and we are trying to make it happen," Ecclestone is quoted as saying by Reuters, ruling out the possibility of Hockenheim hosting the event. "I'm talking with them today."
Meanwhile, a Nürburgring spokeswoman explained to GPUpdate.net on Tuesday afternoon that the circuit is awaiting a response to its latest proposition.
"The German Grand Prix is not confirmed yet," the spokeswoman told GPUpdate.net. "We are still in talks and we are currently waiting for a response to our proposal."
The 2013 German Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on the weekend of 6-7 July.
