NUERBURG, Germany - The Nuerburgring track management is once again hoping to stage the German Formula 1 GP as planned.
According to the MD of Capricorn Nuerburgring, Carsten Schumacher, and the Motorsport Aktuell newspaper in an interview made available ahead of Tuesday's publication: "We've made an offer to Mr (Bernie) Ecclestone and are waiting for his decision."
Schumacher said Germany and F1 were interested in making the race happen and that Capricorn was ready to make a financial loss in the interest of the region and the fans.
"We've made an offer in which F1 organises the German GP and therefore also gets all profits."
F1 boss Ecclestone had recently sent mixed signals whether the race scheduled for July 19 could go ahead at Nuerburgring as planned or in Germany at all.
Nuerburgring and Hockenheim have been alternating as hosts since 2008. It was Nuerburgring's turn in 2015 but financial problems of the organisers cast doubt on the race happening.
Hockenheim also ran up a deficit in 2014. - DPA
