German GP switch to continue until 2011

The arrangement whereby Hockenheim and the Nurburgring annually alternate as host of a single grand prix in Germany looks set to continue at least until 2011.

“We are not dissatisfied with the current solution for alternating. In the current environment, it is the appropriate solution,” Jorn Teske, marketing chief of the Hockenheim circuit, said recently.

Hockenheim is set to host the German grand prix at the weekend.

Last year, the Nurburgring was the only German venue on the 2007 calendar, as the two venues agreed to alternate in a climate of higher competition for races from new international hosts.

Teske has now been quoted by the German news agency SID as further revealing that the alternating scheme is contractually fixed until minimally 2011.
