FIA cuts German GP from 2015 F1 calendar

_N7T5562

The FIA has confirmed that the German Grand Prix has been cut from the 2015 Formula 1 calendar. 

It will be the first time since 1960 that the race has not featured on the F1 calendar.

The Nurburgring was scheduled to host the German GP on July 19, but talks between the circuits new owners and Bernie Ecclestone collapsed over the winter.

Ecclestone pursued a deal with Hockenheim, which hosted the German GP on a rotational basis with the Nurburgring, but circuit officials ruled out holding the race earlier this week.

“The German Grand Prix has been withdrawn as the CRH and promoter did not reach agreement,” the World Motor Sport Council announced on Friday.
