As part of the coronavirus-induced calendar changes, F1 is making a shock return to the former German Grand Prix venue on October 9-11.

F1's current breed of hybrid cars have never raced at the Nurburgring, providing a new element of challenge for the teams and the drivers.

The weather is set to be a major talking point this weekend, with the temperature expected to remain in single digits on both Saturday and Sunday. There is also a high chance of rain across the three days of running.
