Hockenheim says no 2017 contract yet

Sep.30 (GMM) Track boss Georg Seiler says Hockenheim does not yet have a contract to host the German grand prix in 2017.

Earlier this week, the FIA published a race calendar for next year featuring a provisional race date for the track.

It is rumoured Bernie Ecclestone could become the semi-promoter of the race, taking ticket receipts in exchange for a lower race fee.

Hockenheim chief Seiler said clarity in the situation will take “a few weeks”, but insisting that he will not accept the situation where the track could make “a loss”.

“At the moment we do not have a contract for 2017,” he told the German news agency SID.
