The future of the Nurburgring on the F1 calendar is in doubt. Currently, the circuit is controlled by the ADAC-controlled Deutscher Motor Sport Bund E.V. (DMSB) however according to several reports, the FIA may well strip the DMSB of their position at the next extraordinary general meeting of the FIA on October 7th.
In wake of the sex-scandal surrounding Max Mosley earlier in the year, the ADAC were scathing about the FIA president and following his vote of confidence in June, the German automobile body said they would no longer cooperate with the FIA as long as Mosley was in power. It is understood that the Automobil von Deutschland (AvD) the current promoters of Hockenheim are hoping to be named as the DMSB s successor.
