Hockenheim, Germany 2016
The Grand Prix circuit in Hockenheim is a demanding race track with many fast and medium speed corners, for which the drivers must generate plenty of downforce with their Cup racecars. The first corner immediately after the start-finish line is immediate challenge, which requires discipline and assertiveness. The competitors reach top speed in the long Parabolika leading to the hairpin, and must hit the braking point exactly. The majority of the overtaking moves take place under braking – and thanks also to the Push-to-Pass function – exciting slip streaming duels.
