Event overview

The F1 layout of the Nürburgring nestles in the heart of the 22 kilometre full version, and although many are disappointed that the racing is too dangerous on the full-length track, the current circuit offers plenty of challenges of its own. With several overtaking areas, and the addition of DRS, we're unlikely to see a procession from start to finish.

The focus is on aerodynamic efficiency at the Nürburgring as the cars run with maximum downforce, and it is always worth keeping an eye on the weather to spice things up. The track was involved in an alternating arrangement with Hockenheim, to play host to the German Grand Prix. They were due to host the 2015 race but early in the pre-season negotiations, Bernie Ecclestone confirmed there wouldn't be a race at the Nürburgring because there was "nobody there".
