Nürburgring in the dark over German GP plans
15 January 2015 – The Nürburgring's new owners say they have been given no information regarding plans for this year's German Grand Prix.
The track was set to return to the calendar this season as part of a race-sharing agreement with Hockenheim, active since 2008.
But F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone stated on Thursday that the 2015 race will be held at Hockenheim, after the alteration of contract terms.
When asked about the situation by GPUpdate.net, Nürburgring CEO Carsten Schumacher said: "We don't comment [on] the news regarding Formula 1 at the Hockenheimring.
"We haven't got any information about these circumstances.
"Until now, [Capricorn Nürburgring GmbH] CNG hasn't got a contract with Bernie Ecclestone regarding Formula 1 at the Nürburgring in 2015."
CNG bought the Nürburgring last March, and had been hoping to secure a new long-term agreement for the German Grand Prix.
