Hockenheim will mark the halfway point in the season.

This weekend it is the turn of Hockenheim in Germany to host the next round of the 2014 GP2 Series and it will mark the halfway point in the season with five rounds completed and five more to come. The last round at Silverstone was largely positive for the Racing Engineering team with Stefano finishing 2nd and 4th in the two races to move up to 5th in the Championship and Lello being fastest in free practice and taking pole position in qualifying but a mechanical problem caused his retirement in the Feature Race and an accident put him out of the Sprint Race.

It is two years since the GP2 cars last raced at Hockenheim and on that occasion Racing Engineering took a 2nd and 4th place in the two races and they will be looking to get both Stefano and Lello on the podium in both races this weekend.

The revised 4.574km Hockenheimring, designed by Hermann Tilke in 2001, no longer has the fast sweep! ing straights running through the forests that made the old track so intimidating. It now comprises 17 corners, a number of which are relatively tight but it still boasts the famous concrete Stadium section where all the fans gather to watch the racing.

Timetable:

Practice: Fri 18 Jul 2014, 12:00 (GMT+2)
Qualifying Session: Fri 18 Jul 2014, 15:55 (GMT+2)
Race 1: Sat 19 Jul 2014, 15:40 (GMT+2)
Race 2: Sun 20 Jul 2014, 10:35 (GMT+2)
