While we are all set to host the Malaysian round of the World Formula One Championship this weekend, it seems that at an FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) meeting in Geneva held last weekend, the World Motor Sport Council has officially omitted the German Grand Prix from this year’s racing calendar.

Official reasons were not provided but rumours says it is because Hockenheim circuit could not reach an agreement with Bernie Ecclestone’s Formula One Management company after Nurburgring circuit, which ownership has just changed, jeopardised its turn to host the championship for Germany this year.

With the cancellation of the German Grand Prix on 19th July, there looks to be a three-week break between the British Grand Prix on 5th July and the Hungarian Grand Prix on 26th July.
