Hockenheimring is ready to host the 2019 German Grand Prix. The circuit is a mixture of high speed straights reminiscent of the original long track, and a slow section for the few final corners. The “Motodrom”, or the stadium section, is an impressive area to watch the race from, as spectators can hear and see cars coming from as far away as turn 10. The stadium section also directly oversees the final slow corners, making it easier to spot their hero drivers and teams and build excitement for the race.
And with the success in recent years of local heroes Michael Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel – and the Mercedes team – the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim has become one of the most atmospheric races of the season, with the noise from fans in the stadium section being almost deafening at times.
Join us later in the afternoon for the latest updates and results from the Hockenheimring, as the 2019 German Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc at the wheel of the SF90, ready to challenge Mercedes and Red Bull for the win.
