Germany   28 Jul
Grosser Preis von Deutchland
Hockenheimring, Hockenheim, Germany
Race Distance: 67 laps, 306.458 km

The German Grand Prix is back on the calendar after a short hiatus, this time returning to the Hockenheimring.

The original 8km circuit built in 1932 was used for motorcycle racing and as a Mercedes and Auto Union test track. It was shortened and sterilized in the 1960's as several drivers lost their lives (the great Jim Clark died at the 1st chicane in 1968 in an F2 car). For the 2002 Grand Prix, the track was redesigned to its current Tilke configuration.
After a completely mad, sometimes wet, sometimes dry race that saw multiple drivers crash out and Mercedes only score 2 points after post race penalties to both Alfa Romeo cars, Max Verstappen again showed his class after another poor start in tough conditions, Sebastian Vettel redeem himself with a drive from last on the grid to second, Daniil Kvyat earn a rare podium for Toro Rosso, and Kubica and Williams scored their first point in ages.

Curley wins the round and takes over first position in the standings after sitting dead last after the third race! EL SLATSO!!! moves up six positions by coming second, and sperry comes in third. After six races in front, lightsOUT is now second in the standings, and Reno Stack jumps into a close third place.

Next up: Hungary next weekend.
