Despite the great response from the public, Germany is in vain in the racing calendar 2020 . For the sixth time in a Formula 1 season there will be no Expansive Prix in the Federal Republic.

Hurry Carey, Formula 1 boss, had in July before the calendar was announced 2020 emphasizes how “incredibly” important Germany is for him as the “home of the automobile”. “There are many German fans, a German team has won the last five World Cup titles, a German driver is racing for the World Championship,” he said in the summer from ' Sportbild 'quoted.

Despite the successful streak of Mercedes and winning driver Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari, it was nothing with the contract extension. Even then, the talks were “complicated”, the US manager had to admit. “But our enthusiasm for Germany and the German market will always remain.”

Otherwise, the ring wants to present itself primarily as a business location. Hockenheim Mayor Marcus Zeitler emphasizes: “For the future, the Hockenheimring must be expanded into a modern business location. Here we can prove that visions and innovations fit together if we all pull together.”

The goal: attract the private sector to the ring. With emodrom GmbH and the Porsche Trip Center, this has already been partially achieved. Economics Minister Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut (CDU) paid a visit to the Hockenheimring in early January.

She stated that she welcomed the intention that the ring would break new ground and ” technology-open mobility center of the future “. The Hockenheimring could also establish itself as a trade fair location and organizer of major events, such as concerts.
