German Grand Prix Scrapped From 2015 F1 Calendar

By iSportconnect | March 23, 2015

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) have announced that Germany has been removed from the Formula One race calendar for the 2015 season.

The race was in jeapordy for a while amid uncertainty over which circuit would stage the race this year, allergy which has alternated between Hockenheim and Nürburgring since 2007.

Officials of both circuits expressed concerns that time was running out with the race due to take place on the weekend of July 17-19.

Ultimately a decision could not be reached with F1 Chief Bernie Ecclestone.

A short statement by the FIA read: “The German Grand Prix has been withdrawn as the CRH and promoter did not reach agreement.”

This decision now means that the 2015 Formula One season will be shortened to 19 races.
