NÜRBURGRING

NÜRBURGRING

The Nurburgring hosts the 2020 Eifel Grand Prix. The modern and functional facility is located just under a hundred kilometres to the south west of Cologne. It has little in common with its predecessor, the old ‘Ring, that is 23 kilometres long and earned itself the nickname of the “Green Hell.”

The current track used by Formula 1 is known as Nurburging GP-Strecke and is 5.148 kilometres long, with 16 corners, most of them low to medium speed. For a perfect lap a car has to have a very precise front end and excellent traction to put all the power down coming out of the slow turns. There are several overtaking opportunities. In general, the most common places are braking into turn 1 and the chicane in the third sector.

The fastest race lap at the Nurburgring was set by Michael Schumacher (Ferrari) in 2004, when he posted a time of 1:29.468, at an average speed of 207.144 km/h. The last time the German GP was held at the Nurburgring was in 2013 when Sebastian Vettel won for Red Bull.
