F1 still 'pushing' to save German GP - Carey

2018-08-10 09:09

Formula 1 chief executive Chase Carey has given another strong sign that Germany could retain its place on the 2019 calendar.

With the demise of the new Miami race for next season, it is believed Carey is determined to resurrect a mutually agreeable deal with Hockenheim.

'It's an important country for us'

"We're pushing for it. Hockenheim is an important track and Germany is an automotive nation with a large fan base. It's an important country for us.

But we need partners who are committed to a race and support it. We are working on that," Carey told Auto Bild.

As for the 2018 season so far, Carey says he is happy with the show the sport has put on overall.

"The two biggest stars are going head to head. The advantage we have in F1 is that, like football, we have teams that fight each other. 

But we also have these man against man duels. And when two such different characters meet, it's electrifying," Carey said, referring to Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.

Vettel against Hamilton is as epic as John McEnroe against Jimmy Connors. Both are great champions fighting with everything they have, and in their case it's for their fifth world title.

And then Hamilton does us another favour with his polarising gestures," the American told Germany's Sport Bild.
