The old Hockenheimring used to be a 6.8km race through deep forest but was dramatically remodelled because the forest caused many issues for broadcasters and organisers. In 2002 a major redesign took place, cutting out the large forest section, making it a much shorter and tighter circuit – but still fast. In 2018, Scuderia Ferrari German driver and home hero Sebastian Vettel made a crucial error by skidding out on a slow corner, toppling the championship battle on its head. Taking place mid-season, the German GP always brings the drama and the headlines as the championship fight heats up.
Follow us for the latest updates and results from the Hockenheimring, as the first practice session for the 2019 German Grand Prix is about to get underway, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc at the wheel of the SF90, ready to evaluate the ideal set-up ahead of the qualifying session and the race on Sunday.
