The Formula One landscape at the moment is a shambles.

For everyone but the elite, Formula One has become too expensive to compete in with a number of the teams (now unfortunately past and present) struggling financially and it seems also too expensive to host as the German Grand Prix was scrubbed off the calendar.

Despite having two perfectly good Formula One tracks, both with history and the correct facilities neither Nurburgring or Hockenheim could afford to host a race in 2015, leaving Germany without a Grand Prix for the first time 55 years.

Even with financial support from Mercedes, the track promoters at Hockenheim still could not get the numbers to balance due to the demands set by F1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone.
