It's end of the road for German GP

By Ian Parkes

The German Grand Prix has been dropped from this year's Formula One calendar, motor sport's world governing body the FIA has announced.

The race had been in doubt due to questions over which circuit would host the race, which has been shared between Hockenheim and Nurburgring. There had been concern that time was running out to organise the race, which was scheduled to take place over the weekend of July 17-19.

The season will now be shortened to 19 races, with a three-week break between the British Grand Prix on July 5 and the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 26.
