Next year’s German Grand Prix will take place at the Nurburgring circuit. Hockenheim will stage the 2008 event, with the race then alternating between the two venues. The widely-anticipated news was confirmed by the FIA on Wednesday, following a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council.

The move follows the dropping of the European Grand Prix - held in recent years at the Nurburgring - from the 2007 calendar, which was also confirmed at Wednesday’s meeting, with the Japanese and Chinese rounds remaining subject to ASN approval.

There had been media speculation that the other race dropped for next year - the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola - may regain its April slot. However, the FIA noted that no agreement was in place for 18 races in 2007, hence the calendar remains fixed at 17 rounds.
