RACE FACTS

RACE FACTS

The Grand Prix circuit in Hockenheim is a demanding race track with many fast and semi-fast corners in which the car must generate plenty of downforce.

 

In contrast, top speed is of the essence in the long, seemingly never-ending ‘Parabolika’ before the hairpin, where the majority of the overtaking takes place and thrilling slipstreaming is common. The fast first corner after the start-finish line is a challenge.
