2015 F1 season

Start, Hockenheimring, 2014The German Grand Prix will not go ahead in 2015, the FIA has confirmed.

An updated 2015 calendar issued by the sport?s governing body today said the race had been ?withdrawn? as ?the CRH [commercial rights holder] and promotor [sic] did not reach agreement?. The race was originally supposed to take place at the Nurburgring, and attempts to relocate it to the Hockenheimring failed.

This year?s season will therefore consist of 19 races. There will be a three-week gap between the British and Hungarian races in July.

It is the first time since 1960 Germany will not host a round of the world championship. There was no German Grand Prix in 2007, but the European Grand Prix was held at Germany?s Nurburgring.
