Nürburgring poised for German GP deal
8 January 2013 – 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.
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.
