Eifel Grand Prix 2020: Grand Prix Weekend Thread - Round 11 of 17

Unfortunately, I'm snowed under at the moment with work, which leaves little time for a decent preview. There is so much that could be said about the Nürburgring and it would be nice to do it one day, but with little time I couldn't do a preview justice. Looking forward to the event anyway!



Circuit length: 5.148km
Number of laps: 60
Race distance: 308.617km
Race Lap Record: -
Dry weather tyre compounds: C2, C3 & C4

First Grand Prix in Germany: 1926
First World Championship Grand Prix in Germany: 1951
First Grand Prix at the Nürburgring (Nürburgring Gesamtstrecke): 1927
First Grand Prix at the Nürburgring Nordschleife: 1931

What does the Eifel have to do with the Nurburgring? What's with all these stupid new names for Grand Prix?

Mercedes team member tests positive for Covid-19 before Eifel Grand Prix weekend

'Mercedes said the team would not reveal the identity of the person affected but it is not one of the two drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.'

Hopefully this won't impact on the team's involvement in the race this weekend.

'While there was no German GP initially on this year's calendar, following Hockenheim's omission for 2020, the Nurburgring's stand-in race has been named after the area the circuit is located in, while also giving a nod to the wider region as the Eifel mountains stretch across Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.'

I mean, it is the name of the mountains where the circuit is located. It's even the same mountain range that gives it some of the corner names - Hohe Acht n all that. So, quite a lot.

Extends into Belgium too.

I suspect ASCII is confusing geography with Parisian landmarks.

I'm surprised neither were added in although costs may have had a bearing


Are there any support races?

As to F1 Vettel has admitted to being a shareholder in Aston. He wouldn't be drawn on how much he has invested though!

BR, we miss your usual array of introduction detail but none of us will think any less of you or your intros because work prevents you from going hard on this.

Don't know if there's all that much that can be said in reality - I think that this is the first ever Grosser Preis Der Eifel so no history to fall back on at all.

No doubt the circuit itself would give plenty of historical material to draw on, from when it was located in Germany but now that it's been relocated to Eifel, it's a whole new deal all 'round!

So Mick Schumacher will take part in a GP for the first time. Only 8 years after his father last raced in F1

It's interesting the gap between a father's last GP and their son's first GP (the below includes practice sessions)

Parnell- 5 years (1954-59)
Schumacher- 8 years (2012-20)
Pilette- 10 years (1964-74)*
Andretti- 11 years (1982-93)
Verstappen- 11 years (2003-14)
Villenueve- 14 years (1982-96)
Nakajima- 16 years (1991-2007)
Magnussen - 16 years (1998-2014)
Hill- 17 years (1975-92)
Fittipaldi- 17 years (1975-92)
Piquet- 17 years (1991-2008)
Brabham- 20 years (1970-90)
Rosberg-20 years (1986-2006)
Stuck - 21 years (1953-74)
Winkelhock- 21 years (1985-2006)
Palmer- 26 years (1989-2015)

*Pilette Jr first competed in a NC race in 71

Hope I haven't missed anyone out!
