Walter Kafitz is no longer the boss of the German Formula One circuit at the Nurburgring.

The local authority said the venue has been taken over by the private Lindner Group, which is headed by Lorg Lindner who already operates a nearby hotel.

59-year-old Kafitz had been in charge at the Nurburgring, which is not scheduled to return to the F1 calendar until 2011 when its current contract ends, for the past 15 years.

The mainly state-controlled Nurburgring GmbH company will also no longer be involved in the daily operation of the circuit.
