“We have got the race pencilled in. It’s on the calendar. We can decide it once the season has started.”

This month first week Ecclestone was quoted by Reuters saying that the location of the German Grand Prix “should be the Nurburgring and we are trying to make it happen.” He added.

“I’m talking with them today.” Reuters claimed that a deal with the circuit could be agreed imminently but Ecclestone says that was optimistic.

“I said to Reuters that I was talking to them about trying to do something. I don’t know what is going to happen with Nurburgring. That’s what we are trying to sort out.”
