Nürburgring marks the halfway point of the GP2 Series season.
The half-way point in the 2013 GP2 Series has arrived, and with five race weekends completed, there are just five more to come after this weekend’s two races at the Nürburgring. It is two years since the GP2 cars last raced at the German circuit as the German GP alternates annually between here and Hockenheim.
Whilst the current 5.148 km circuit is very different from the classic 22.8 km track that was the venue for the German GP up until 1976 it still offers a number of challenges with its combination of corners, some slow and some fast. There are overtaking opportunities on the final turn before the start/finish straight and the following hairpin and, as ever, the setup of the car will be critical to a fast lap.
