This race is held in Hockenheim, Germany and is the Tenth race in the F1 calender.
. The circuit is 6.2 km long and a total of 45 laps have to be completed to decide the winner.Located some fifty miles south of Frankfurt,  the circuit was originally built as a test circuit for Mercedes
cars. The German Grand Prix has been staged here since 1986 and it is, for the majority, an
open circuit that is very fast throughout. The exception to this is the stadium complex near the
starting grid where the track twists back and forth through 360 degrees in front of the
grandstands.

This makes it a very difficult circuit to set up for. At over 6 km in length, it is one of the longest Grand Prix circuits, and it is often more infamously remembered as the circuit that took the life
of  Jim Clarke in April 1968. Weather is often very changeable as the circuit winds its way through
dense pine forests which can create dangerous patches of fog and mist.
