Oct.27 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Bernie Ecclestone has confirmed reports Hockenheim could return to the F1 calendar in 2013.

According to their alternating scheme, with Hockenheim having hosted the German grand prix this year, it was scheduled to be the Nurburgring’s turn in 2013.

But the Nurburgring is weighed under with financial problems, triggering reports Hockenheim could stage next year’s German grand prix instead.

“Yes, there are negotiations with Hockenheim about the race in 2013,” F1 chief executive Ecclestone is quoted by Wirtschaftswoch.
