With the embattled circuit facing insolvency ahead of its scheduled return to the 2013 calendar, it emerged recently that the local Rhineland-Palatinate state had decided to keep the Nurburgring afloat.

But subsequent news that the state aid will be investigated by the European Commission has renewed fears the Nurburgring will not feature on next year's schedule.

F1 chief executive Ecclestone, however, says he remains in talks with race officials.

"I am currently in negotiations with the officials at the Nurburgring," he is quoted as saying in an interview with Saturday's Rhein-Zeitung newspaper.

Ecclestone said the objective is to see the "race at the 'Ring in 2013".

He would not comment on the likely success of the talks.
