"The race this year spoke of the enthusiasm for Formula 1 in Germany. That's why is was important for us to do everything in our power to keep our home race next year as well," Mercedes' Toto Wolff told Bild newspaper.

Liberty Media's F1 sporting boss Ross Brawn is now working on keeping Germany on the calendar beyond 2019.

"We are interested in Germany being a permanent host on the calendar again. One solution would be to alternate the grand prix as before between Hockenheim and the Nürburgring," said Brawn.
