BERLIN (REUTERS) - The Nurburgring circuit will not host the German Formula One Grand Prix this year, an official for the company said on Thursday after Hockenheim also ruled out the possibility.

The Nurburgring was scheduled to host the July 19 race under an alternation agreement with Hockenheim, which hosted last year's grand prix and has an agreement for 2016.

A Nuerburgring spokesman said the circuit could not do so "for time, financial and organisational reasons."

On Tuesday, Hockenheim boss Georg Seiler ruled out stepping in as a replacement after Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone said that track was the only remaining option.

The absence of Germany, home of reigning world champions Mercedes, for the first time since 1960 leaves the calendar with 19 races.

Cordial Best,

Just heard the other day an interview with an ex F1 doc. And he said that track owners are stupid, because they are paying for F1. There are only 20, 30 tracks that are capable of hosting od F1 race. If none of them would pay Bernie to host F1, Bernie could not go to some new tracks because there are not any...
