Speaking as head of Mercedes' motor racing programmes, he said the circuit is important not just for the German Grand Prix but also the touring car championship DTM, which is also contested by the Stuttgart carmaker.

"I don't think the lights are going out," he is quoted by Die Welt newspaper.

"I am sure that solutions will be found," said German Haug.

Mark Webber, who earlier this week admitted he is not a big fan of the modern Hockenheim layout, said on Thursday he would be sad to see Germany's other Grand Prix venue fall off the calendar.

"Yeah, it's a sensational little track and obviously you have the big circuit out the back," said the Australian.

Michael Schumacher joked that F1's reigning world champion, Sebastian Vettel, might be able to bail out the legendary circuit.

"Your wallet is bigger than mine," Vettel smiled back.
