Hockenheimring was already 1932 built on uncharted forest roads and expanded over time to the track. The first Formula One race on the Hockenheimring was started 1970. More than 100.000 spectators ago, the Austrian Jochen Rindt won in a Lotus Ford. 1971, formula 1 returned to the Nurburgring ring. But 1976, Niki Lauda was badly defeated on the northern loop. The formula 1 then returned to Hockenheim 1977.
With an interruption, 1985 to the opening of the new Nuremberg ring, the Grand Prix was consistently awarded from Germany to 2006 on the Hockenheim ring. In the year 2002, the track was completely rebuilt. The conversion cost around 62 million euros. Since then, the 4574 kilometer line designed by Hermann Tilke, which houses 17-curve and 6-straight, has been one of the most modern racing tracks in the world. Thanks to new stands, the audience capacity has been increased to 120.000 places.
Since 2006, the German Grand Prix has been held alternately on the Hockenheim ring and the Nurburgring ring. 2015 is the turn of the Nuremberg ring, but there are financial problems with the event. If the Hockenheimring does not start as an alternative venue, there will probably be no home race for the German pilots.
