This has seen Pirelli nominate the white-marked medium, yellow-marked soft and purple-marked ultrasoft tyre compounds for this returning race. This combination was last used in China, with an exciting strategic battle occurring in Shanghai.
“Germany is a bit of an unknown quantity, with no Grand Prix having taken place there since 2016,” says Mario Isola, Pirelli’s Head of Car Racing. “In the meantime, a lot has changed on the cars as well as of course the tyre range, while the Hockenheimring itself is substantially unaltered.
“I feel ready for the final two races before the summer break. We have been finding performance as a team with strong results in the last few races and I want to have two good ones before the holidays.- Esteban Ocon as quoted to F1
“After the three races in a row it was good to have a few days off, and I hope all the team members managed to get a bit of a break too. I spent a couple of days mountain biking in the UK and enjoying the weather, but it was soon time to get back to work with a day in the simulator to prepare for the German Grand Prix.- Brendon Hartly, as quoted to F1
Hockenheim is a fun circuit and I’ve always enjoyed going there. My highlight is probably the battle I had there with Alonso in 2014 which I loved. –Daniel Ricciardo as quoted to F1
“It’s very special to have the German Grand Prix back on the calendar. A home race is extremely motivating, as you carry that extra ounce of determination to do well in front of the home fans. We missed it last season, but now it’s back at Hockenheim, we’ll really enjoy every moment throughout the weekend.” – Nico Hulkenberg, as quoted to F1
The German Grand Prix is back on the calendar and I’m looking forward to it. I’m sure quite a few Dutch fans will also come over and visit the track to support me. At the last German Grand Prix we had a double podium, so that is, of course, a good memory. – Max Verstappen as quoted to F1
“I enjoy racing at Hockenheim and have won there three times so it’s great to be back after a break last year. The track is viewed as one of the classics, it’s fun to drive and there are a couple of overtaking opportunities – and an extra DRS zone this year – so hopefully we can fight with the cars around us.- Alonso as quoted to F1
“We didn’t score as many points in the triple-header as we had hoped for. A lot of that was down to our own mistakes. However, there is a silver lining to this – while we didn’t maximise on points, we did bring the quickest car to all three races. Toto Wolf- Mercedes, as quoted to F1
