Mercedes could help rescue the German Grand Prix.

That is the claim of the comapny's motorsport boss, Toto Wolff.

The race looks set to be scrapped from the 2017 schedule amid declining popularity and financial difficulties for the race organisers.

"Maybe it is due to the fact that Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel won so many races and titles," Wolff is quoted by Speed Week.

On the subject of Mercedes stepping in to help, Wolff said that such an idea had been proposed before, and they are open to offering again.

"The fact is, when the race was doubtful in the past we offered financial help, so we are open to lending a hand. But at that time nothing came of it," revealed Wolff.
