Domenicali unhappy with Germany for lack of interest in hosting a GP – “Actually hard to believe”

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali is unhappy with Germany for not being interested in having a German GP on the F1 calendar.

F1 has had the German GP since 1950. The country’s rich heritage in motorsport make it an illustrious member of F1. It has also produced many top drivers, including the greatest ever to do it in Michael Schumacher.

However, the last season saw no stop in Germany. Given the country has hosted so many races and so many good ones at that, it is disappointing for fans to see it absent on the calendar.

Domenicali revealed that he was unhappy with Germany for not being interested in hosting the German GP.

Speaking to Sport1, the Italian said, “I am disappointed and also sad that we don’t have a German Grand Prix at the moment.

“However, unfortunately, I don’t see any real interest from Germany to become part of the Formula 1 calendar again. That’s a shame and actually hard to believe.

“We have so many requests from all over the world. We could easily race on 30 different circuits. And to see that nobody is calling from Germany is unfortunate.”

Needs addressing

“It should be an open discussion to sound out how Formula 1 can return to Germany. And I will take an active role in that,” he continued.

“If I had any say in Germany, I would invest in drivers. But you are already in a good position there.

“With Seb (Sebastian Vettel), you have a four-time world champion and an incredibly talented driver in the field. You have Mick Schumacher, who is at the beginning of a promising career.

“But anything that increases the interest of the Germans is welcome,” he concluded.
