Five Things to Look Out for at the Nürburgring

•    Formula 1 has not visited the Nürburgring since 2013, and while it is immediately more familiar than the likes of Mugello – a totally new race venue for 2020 – the likes of pre-event simulation will be crucial in getting teams up to speed as quickly as possible this weekend.
 

•    F1 returns to the C2, C3 and C4 range for the Eifel Grand Prix, a familiar tyre range that has been used at seven of the 10 Grands Prix to date. Already having strong knowledge of the tyre should help the teams acclimatise to the Nürburgring more quickly.
 

•    Everyone in F1 loves to talk about the weather, but the sport has rarely raced in Europe this late in the year. While F1 has traditionally raced at the Nürburgring on track temperatures that could be in the range of 40C, it is expected to be much lower this weekend and will make tyre warm-up of the harder compounds in particular more challenging.
 

•    The last triple-header largely took in a succession of high-speed corners across the circuits, while the Russian Grand Prix was largely medium-speed turns. The Nürburgring on the other hand has a broader range of corner speeds from the 80-90km/h Turn 1 up to well over 200kph in Turn 8.
 

•    The evolution of Formula 1 cars means the modern machines will likely change pre-conceived notions of the approach to a lap. For example, Turns 8 and 9 were once considered high-speed corners, but could potentially now be taken flat-out, meaning there’s plenty for teams and drivers to get their heads around early in the weekend.
