After his recent success at Silverstone, Lewis Hamilton is looking pretty good for winning the championship again this year, but he won’t be putting his feet up and coasting to that win. That’s certainly not his way, he’ll be going all out to win all the races right up to the very last one. He won the German Grand Prix last year, his fourth win here, and no doubt he’ll be keen to secure a fifth win this year. Michael Schumacher also took 4 wins at this, his home circuit, the only other driver to be more successful in the German Grand Prix was Rudolph Caracciola. He managed six wins between 1926 and 1939.

Temperatures are soaring at the circuit, and there’s a good chance of thunderstorms too, so it could be a very challenging race weekend in the soaring heat.

The German Grand Prix marks the halfway point of the F1 season this year and for those with Sky Sport F1, all the action will be broadcast live from Hockenheim.
