Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg says he hopes the uncertainty surrounding the future of the German Grand Prix can be resolved, following comments from Bernie Ecclestone that the race may drop off the calendar.

Hockenheim and the Nurburgring currently share hosting duties but neither circuit has a contract for 2015, with Ecclestone saying on Tuesday that time was running out to sort out a venue for this year's event.

German driver Rosberg, who won at Hockenheim in 2014, says the country deserves to have a Grand Prix.

"I recently heard about the discussions concerning the German Grand Prix and it's really sad for me and the German fans to hear that nothing is confirmed yet for 2015," Rosberg said after the third day of testing at Jerez.

"For as long as I can remember, the German Grand Prix was part of the Formula One World Championship, so I really hope our Grand Prix will be held this year and beyond that.

"The fans deserve to have a great show every year because there are so many great supporters out there. Also there is plenty of Germany in F1, with us German drivers like Sebastian [Vettel], [Nico] Hulkenberg and myself, plus of course Mercedes-Benz. So I really hope that Bernie and the promoters find a good solution for everybody."
