2019 German Grand Prix


2019 German GPHockenheim

The German Grand Prix is a race that has been held the majority of years since 1926, with 75 races having been held. Now we have the 2019 German Grand Prix.

The first 1926 German Grand Prix, was held at the AVUS track on July 11, 1926, in heavy rain, and was won by the great German driver, Rudolf Caracciola in a Mercedes, as shown above.

The race has had a stable history for one of the older Grands Prix, having been held at just three different venues throughout its life; the Nürburgring in Rhineland-Palatinate, Hockenheimring in Baden-Württemberg and on odd occasion AVUS near Berlin.

The fast, flat Hockenheim circuit near Heidelberg has played sole host to the German Grand Prix for the last 30 years. The first at Hockenheim in 1977 was won by Niki Lauda in a Ferrari and last year the race was cancelled.

The 2019 German Grand Prix is the latest to be run at Hockenheim after the cancellation of 2018. So welcome to the 2019 German Grand Prix.

2018 German GP

Before the race, Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel was the leader of the World Drivers’ Championship, while Lewis Hamilton was in second place, eight points behind Vettel. In the World Constructors’ Championship, Ferrari held a twenty-point lead over Mercedes.

Hamilton won the race from 14th on the grid, leading a Mercedes 1–2 ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas after race leader Vettel crashed out

The race was not without controversy as Hamilton was seen to abort a planned pit stop late in the race, cutting across the infield to rejoin the circuit. He was reprimanded for the rules violation, but was allowed to keep his race win.

As a result of the race, Mercedes and Hamilton moved to first place in the Constructors’ and the Drivers’ championship standings respectively

2019 German Grand Prix

Ferrari are top in the first and second practice from Mercedes so we will see if that is the same for qualifying.

BUT in qualifying the team let down the drivers with Sebastian Vettel not reaching Q2 due to a turbo failure, AND Charles Leclerc not going out in Q3.

Lewis Hamilton was fastest from Max Verstappen.

The race

With a wet race all things would change and the final result was in doubt until late in the race,  with max Verstappen leading and Sebastian Vettel finsishing 2nd!
