Complete Guide to 2013 German GP

by on July 3, 2013

nurburgring1With hardly enough time for crews to catch their breaths, pack-up, ship out and set-up again after the British GP at Silverstone, Formula One arrives in Germany for another round of racing.

The Nürburgring is a world-famous circuit with a historical past and great significance to both Grand Prix racing as well as car manufacturing.  It is often the benchmark used to assess and tune suspension and handling for road going cars and super cars alike.  So to for F1 racing where both car and driver are tested.  It is both tight and twisty in some low-speed sections and seriously fast in various other sectors of the circuit which makes setup a difficult compromise for engineers.

The racing circuit has more configurations than Bernie’s got stories.  Recently, the future of the circuit has been in doubt as it may be in some financial difficulties.
