Germany's recent formula one hosts, the Nurburgring and Hockenheim, are still both in the running to stage next year's July race. As per the venues' alternating agreement, the financially-embattled Nurburgring was originally scheduled to organise the 2013 event.

But Malu Dreyer, the incoming minister-president for the ruling government of the Rhineland-Palatinate state, said the Nurburgring is still in the running. "I hope so," she told the DPA news agency. "For me, there is only one question: how do we ensure the future of this racing circuit? In any case, I believe the government has an obligation of support."

But Hockenheim, despite having staged the German grand prix in 2012, has also been mentioned as the possible 2013 host. "We would be willing to have the formula one race next year," a circuit spokesman is quoted by Speed Week, "but we have not yet heard about it." (GMM)
