The return of Formula 1 on the German Nürburgring circuit seems sealed. Various media report that a race will be held on October 11 that counts for the world championship.
According to a well-entered motorsport site, the race will be named the Grand Prix of the Eifel.
A circuit spokesman confirmed on Thursday that talks were underway with the Formula 1 management. Since 2014, the Nürburgring has been missing due to the high financial charges. Sebastian Vettel was the last winner of the race on the famous circuit in 2013.
Last year the German Grand Prix was at Hockenheim. That circuit was also in the picture for a race on the calendar-adjusted for the corona pandemic but indicated on Thursday that a Formula 1 race for this year is not feasible.
According to motorsport media, the Formula 1 emergency calendar will also be supplemented with races at the Portimão circuit in Portugal on October 25 and Imola in Italy on November 1.
The king’s class is reportedly refraining from racing on the American continent because the coronavirus outbreak is still worrying. That means that there will be no races this year in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Brazil.
