Formula 1 will return to Germany this year. As RTL reports, the premier class is scheduled to appear at the Nürburgring in autumn.
From October 9 to 11, Formula 1 is to take place in the “Green Hell”, the notorious title of the track. This emerges from consistent media reports. The Hockenheimring was previously a favorite, but the state of Baden-Württemberg put a stop to the plan. The last Formula 1 race at the Nürburgring took place seven years ago. At that time Sebastian Vettel won. The previous record winner is Michael Schumacher with five wins.
The state of Rhineland-Palatinate is said to have promised Formula 1 that a certain number of spectators will be allowed in the stands. According to the RTL, this was crucial for the Formula 1 bosses. However, that shouldn’t be set in stone yet. After all, stable lower or falling corona fall numbers are the prerequisite for this. Formula 1 is also not spared the regulations and restrictions affecting major events.
Meanwhile, not only German racing fans have reason to be happy. Formula 1 recently announced two more races in Europe. A race is to take place in Portimao in Portugal from October 23-25. Another is confirmed for Imola (Italy) from October 31st to November 1st. However, other originally planned stations will be completely eliminated due to the corona pandemic. The United States, Mexico, Brazil and Canada are affected.
As usual, the races will be shown on German television on RTL and Sky.
