The Formula One circus hits the Eifel region of Germany this weekend for the German Grand Prix. The event is held at the Nürburgring, but doesn’t use the long-and-terrifying Nordschleife track. Instead, the venue is held at the Grand Prix track adjacent to the ‘Ring, which features wide runoff areas and gravel traps, as opposed to the Nordschliefe’s narrow shoulders and dense pine forests.
The Grand Prix track was “improved” for the 2002 season with the addition of the “Haug-Hook” corner at the end of the main start-finish straight. This many be the only area suitable for passing on the entire track, so expect bold moves from Ferrari and McLaren-Mercedes at the start of the race. I’ll call it now – expect a Vettel – Alonso – Hamilton podium.
