There will be no German Grand Prix this year, the boss of the Hockenheim circuit has told a German newspaper.

The track hosted the 2014 race but is supposed to alternate each year with the Nurburgring.

However, the Nurburgring has new owners and no contract for 2015.

Hockenheim boss Georg Seiler told Bild they could not be ready in time for the July 17-19 race, adding: "We have no hope any more of having a Formula One race here."

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone said in January that Hockenheim would host this year's German Grand Prix as the only alternative to the Nurburgring.

The official 2015 calendar does not yet specify a venue for the race.
