Bettingpro's guide to the German Grand Prix and it's host venue, the Hockenheimring.

Circuit Guide

The famous Hockenheimring circuit made its Formula 1 debut back in 1977 and since that date has hosted all but a handful of German Grand Prix. However, to many this is a track that is a shell of its former self having undergone some serious modifications over the years, while being drastically shortened, but those changes were necessary for safety reasons following several driver accidents over the years. The German Grand Prix remains a popular leg of the season, but Formula 1 officials continue to deal with the track on a yearly basis and that means there is always a dark cloud hanging over the Hockenheimring when it comes to its long-term future. One man who will be hoping it stays on is Lewis Hamilton – three of his four German Grand Prix wins have been at this track and out of the current active line-up he is by far the most successful driver in this leg of the F1 roadshow.
