Hockenheim ready for 2013 in case of Nurburgring demise

Hockenheim is ready to step in at short notice, should the Nurburgring be unable to organise next year's German grand prix. The Nurburgring has been given only a conditional date on the draft 2013 schedule, due to the circuit's well-documented financial problems.

According to the alternating scheme in place between Germany's two grand prix hosts, Hockenheim - having hosted this year's race in the country - is not officially scheduled to return to the calendar until 2014. But with the Nurburgring grappling with its financial problems, Hockenheim chief Georg Seiler said he is open to thinking about a 2013 event "in the right financial conditions".

"At the moment, we wait," he is quoted by the DAPD news agency. "Should there be a request, we would consider it." Seiler said he hopes the Nurburgring's race can survive. "It would be a real shame for them, in their difficult situation, to lose the grand prix," he nobly said. (GMM)
