Hockenheim – Germany has only an outside chance of hosting a Formula One race at Hockenheim next season, the future chief executive told dpa on Saturday.
The motorsport series is looking to add races in Vietnam and Zandvoort in the Netherlands next year with Germany, Spain and Mexico looking vulnerable with 21 grands prix expected.
"Under normal circumstances, if both Zandvoort and Vietnam are ready on time, then our chance is minimal," Jorn Teske said.
If the new races are delayed, Hoffenheim could step in but with mixed emotions.
"That is certainly not our preferred solution, we do not want to be a stop gap," Teske said. "In our view, the goal must be to get a medium-term solution."
