Hockenheim

After finances and failed negotiations scuppered the German GP, the country returned to the Formula 1 calendar in 2018 with the race back at Hockenheim.

It used to be the most represented country on the Formula 1 grid but now only Sebastian Vettel and Nico Hulkenberg call Germany home.

It is, however, the second most successful country when it comes to Drivers’ Champions, having won 11 titles – even if it was just two drivers winning them all – to Britain's 17.

The 16-corner 4.574km Hockenheim circuit has a maximum elevation of just four metres with the highest point of the track 152m above sea level.

Seating capacity is 120,000 and while in recent years the track has struggled to bring in the fans, the success of 2018's race allowed a new deal to be agreed for 2019.

Directions: Car, bus or train, Hockenheim is an easy track to get to. Arriving at either Baden-Baden or Memminge airports, fans can stay in the local camping sites or find a hotel in Hockenheim with the circuit located on the outskirts of the city.
