Nov.16 (GMM) Bernie Ecclestone has played down reports Germany could fall off next year's F1 calendar altogether.

With the Nurburgring's financial problems well documented, Hockenheim officials this week have suggested it will be "certainly problematic" to step in at short notice for 2013.

But F1 chief executive Ecclestone said: "For sure we will be in Germany in 2013.

"We do not want and will not lose the race in Germany, for sure," the Briton told the SID news agency.
