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)
