Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Team - 2014 Santander German Grand Prix 18 to 20 July @ Hockenheimring (4.574 km) Baden-Württemberg Germany preview


Hockenheim only happens once every two years, sharing the task of hosting the German Grand Prix on alternate years with the Nürburgring. For Scuderia Toro Rosso, round 10 of the Formula One World Championship comes on the back of a run of races in which the STR9 delivered generally good levels of performance. That has been true on a wide variety of tracks with very different characteristics, if one looks at Monaco, Canada, Austria and Britain. Hockenheimring offers a very complete range of corner types, slow, medium and high-speed, requiring reasonably high levels of downforce and another key factor will be the behaviour of the Pirelli Soft and Supersoft tyres, which is quite an aggressive choice of compounds for this track, especially if the conditions are as hot as usual there. There is also a high chance of thunderstorms. Overtaking is relatively straightforward, particularly into the hairpin at turn six. 
.
Jean - Eric Vergne: It’s a nice track and I like the stadium section, the right hand bend and the hairpin, which is a fantastic section in a Formula One car: you drive the whole lap just looking forward to this section! If the track could be just this, it would be fantastic. The rest of it includes a straight that is long enough to allow you to overtake. In fact there are quite a few overtaking opportunities here. I also like the high speed first corner, which requires real commitment from the driver.

Daniil Kvyat: I have good memories of racing here, including getting pole position in Formula 3 last year. It’s a nice flowing circuit with some fast straights, some heavy braking, especially for the famous hairpin where you can overtake, fast corners and the stadium section with its big crowd. I like the location with the countryside and the forests, which I always appreciate more than the hassle of a city. It’s a classic European track, requiring a good amount of downforce. There are some long straights but that’s not where the main lap time is found. So you have to have good stability in the more twisty sections.
