Nurburgring confident that 2013 German GP will happen

Nurburgring aerial viewDec.3 (GMM) Nurburgring officials say they are confident about running the German GP next year after meeting late last week in London with Bernie Ecclestone.

Earlier, it was believed that the circuit’s hopes of organising next year’s grand prix had been dashed by financial problems and a breakdown in talks.

But, back at the circuit on Friday, officials Jorg Lindner and Kai Richter said their Thursday meeting with F1 chief executive Ecclestone had left them feeling “confident”, according to the German language Spox.

The report said that the final version of the calendar for the 2013 season will be published by Formula One’s governing body this week.
