F1 Grand Prix of Germany
F1 Grand Prix of Germany

Formula 1 heads to Hockenheimring for the Round-11 of the F1 World Championship, the German Grand Prix 2018. The GP is included in the Calendar after a gap of one year.

Sebastian Vettel tops the championship standings by 8 points over Lewis Hamilton heading to his home race in Germany. Another German who will be looking for a strong finish is Renault's Nico Hulkenberg.

Formula One's first ever triple header concluded in Silverstone with Mercedes, Ferrari, and Red Bull winning a race each.

In 2016, it was the German Nico Rosberg who claimed pole in his Mercedes but his teammate Hamilton went on to win the race with Ricciardo and Verstappen finishing second and third respectively.

A third DRS zone has been placed on the track after the start/finish straight as part of the FIA's attempt to improve overtaking opportunities in F1.

Mercedes will be the team to beat on their home turf but Ferrari will be very closely matched in terms of pace and the Red Bull will be looking to score a podium during the Sunday's race.

The Battle in midfield is likely between Haas and Renault. Hulkenberg will be looking to top the midfield battle as he is managed to do the same in the earlier races this year.
