German Grand Prix return ‘1000 per cent’ certain – Seiler

1 Mins read

The Director of the Hockenheim circuit in Germany has insisted that he is ‘1000 per cent’ sure that the circuit will host the German Grand Prix in 2016.

The race was omitted from the calendar in 2015 after the Nurburgring was unable to fulfil its contract, while an agreement with Hockenheim chief Georg Seiler was not forthcoming to switch the race to his circuit.

But Seiler insists its contract to host the race in 2016 remains valid, and Formula 1 will return to Hockenheim next season.

“For next year we have an agreement and we always respect our contracts,” said Seiler to the German news agency SID. “Our race in 2016 is certainly a thousand percent.

“I have a good relationship with Bernie Ecclestone. For me there is no indication that the Germany Grand Prix 2016 at risk.”
