The German Grand Prix has been officially removed from the 2015 Formula 1 schedule by the FIA.
The sports governing body confirmed the news on Friday, meaning that Germany will fail to host a Grand Prix for the first time since the 1960 Formula 1 season.
The Nurburgring was initially scheduled to host the event in July, but with the track under new ownership, talks with the new owners collapsed during the winter.
Officials in Hockenheim were then unable to agree a deal with Bernie Ecclestone, and had revealed earlier during the week that they had given up on attempting to host the race this year.
The disappearance of the German Grand Prix means that there will be nineteen Grand Prix in 2015, with a three-week gap between the British and Hungarian Grand Prix, before a four-week gap to the following Belgian Grand Prix.
Hockenheim are believed to have a contract to host the Grand Prix in 2016, with hopes high that the exclusion of the race in Germany will just be for one season.
