German GP back on 2019 F1 calendar after new deal agreed

MONZA, Italy (Reuters) - The German Grand Prix at Hockenheim will remain on the Formula One calendar next season after a new deal was agreed, the sport announced on Friday. Mercedes-Benz will be the title sponsor of a race that had been out of contract after this year and had looked in danger of disappearing for financial reasons. The calendar will have the same 21 races as this season, with the first race in Australia on March 17 and the last in Abu Dhabi on Dec. 1. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by John Stonestreet)
