Hockenheim handed reprieve

Hockenheim chiefs have signed a new deal with F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, guaranteeing it remains as one of Germany's two circuits until at least 2018.

The German Grand Prix currently alternates between the Nurburgring and Hockenheim, although doubts had been raised about the latter's inclusion on the calendar for next year as a £5.5million loss was being anticipated.

However, fears over its future now appear to have been eased after the drawing up of a new contract.

"The FOA (Ecclestone's Formula One Administration) and Hockenheim-Ring will share participation in the entrepreneurial opportunities and risks of the event," confirmed a statement.
