As reported on HomeofSport

This weekend’s German grand prix is likely to be the last at Hockenheim. Circuit spokesman Hartmut Tesseraux told ‘dpa’ on Monday that he ‘assumes’ the race is to drop off Bernie Ecclestone’s 2007 calendar.

With Spa Francorchamps to return and teams unwilling to travel to more than 18 venues each year, Germany – with two grands prix on the current schedule – along with Italy, is an obvious target for the cull. He added, however, that Hockenheim is still hopeful that Ecclestone could agree to a year-by-year alternation of the Formula One privilege with organisers of the Nurburgring event.
