2016 Formula 1 German Grand Prix Break
2016 will see the much publicised and much anticiapted return of the German GP after its cancellation from the calender in 2015. The Hockenheim Circuit hosted the German Grand Prix for the first time in 1970 when the drivers decided at the French Grand Prix to boycott the Nürburgring unless major changes were made. From 2007, the Nürburgring and Hockenheimring have alternately hosted the German Grand Prix, starting with the Nürburgring in 2007. In 2014, Nico Rosberg thrilled the home crowd by becoming only the second German driver after Sebastien Vettel in 2013, to win their home GP. The experienced staff at Thomas Cook Sport are looking forward to welcoming and assisting you to the German GP 2016. Hockenheim is a small village approximatley 20km from Heidelberg to the east and Mannheim to the north. It’s smack bang in the middle of the Rhine valley so the landscape is very flat. The complex stadium circuit ensures there is a balancing act for drivers, either give it up on the straights in order to get it back in the twisty bits or vice versa. It is actually still quite a power-hungry track and about 65 per cent of the lap is taken at full throttle.
Nurburgring, often called "The Ring" by the enthusiasts, has a mix of high and low-speed corners with limited overtaking possibilities, putting a premium on qualifying and fast pit stops. As the track is located right next to the Eifel Mountains, the weather is a constant concern and may play a decisive role in the race. After a downpour on the track it really takes time to dry up. To be competitive you need a car with good traction, which is very stable while braking. The Nurburgring also demands some of the highest downforce levels of the season. The tight and challenging circuit is 5.15 kilometers long and features 15 corners, 9 right-handers and 6 left-handers. Who will get it right in 2015 and earn a podium finish?
