Facts about the German Grand Prix

The German Grand Prix returns after a year break, returning to the familiar host in Hockenheim. One a long blast through the forest which only Monza could rival, it now has a more ‘traditional’ feed for a racetrack.

With the Nurburgring not able to put together a race last season, the Hockenheimring had a chance running 2015 race, but decided against it. In the height of the Micheal Schumacher reign, the grandstands were packed, but now even with a top rate driver in the form of Sebastian Vettel the crowds are not following. ~
