Negotiations are said to continuing, but no deal has been signed yet.
Jan.23 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone has not given up on F1's scheduled return to the Nurburgring in 2013.
"I am doing my best to make sure we do not lose Formula One in Germany," Ecclestone, 82, is quoted by the Allgemeine Zeitung.
The newspaper said it knows negotiations are still taking place between Ecclestone and Nurburgring officials, but that a deal is not yet signed.
"Whether he (Ecclestone) will sign in the coming days, he did not say," the media report explained.
Nurburgring official Karl-Heinz Steinkuhler would not comment.
