    Laps: 67
    Lap distance: 2.842 miles
    DRS: From exit of Einfahrt Parabolika to the braking zone of Spitzkehre.

    Friday
    Practice 1 - 9:00am BST
    Practice 2 - 1:00pm BST

    Saturday
    Practice 3 - 10:00am BST
    Qualifying - 1:00pm BST

    Sunday
    Race - 1:00pm BST

    Formula 1 last visited Hockenheim in 2010, which was the centre of the team orders scandal after Massa was forced to slow for Alonso to let his teammate win the race. Last year, Formula 1 visited the Nürburgring due to its agreement with Hockenheim to race-share. Lewis Hamilton won the race, capitalising on Vettel's struggle with overtaking to cut the German's championship lead from Mark Webber to 77 points. Vettel has struggled with home races, and has never won his home Grand Prix - his best result being at the Nürburgring in 2009 with a second place behind his teammate, but can he capitalise on his team's new-found speed? Can McLaren use their new developments to their advantage? Can Alonso continue his own turn of speed to win for a third time in Germany? And can Lotus finally break their own duck in 2012?

    Remembered that it's the Sky weekend pass! First thing I did was turn on the TV and put it on Sky F1 and it hasn't changed since!!

    Sadly this is the first race this year I'm gna miss live, going camping for the weekend!

    I have informed my family that when I return on Sunday evening, I'm ordering a Chinese and watching the race on Sky+ regardless of their previous plans.

    This clashes with my dads plan to return and watch his recording of the last leg of the Tour De France. Oops.

    It's nice to not have Jake flapping that iPad around!! But F1 is F1 as far as I'm concerned, the coverage seems decent so far!! Still prefer The Chain though, Alistair Griffin just doesn't do it for me!

    Yeah I agree, more often than not this year, I have woken up 5 mins before coverage starts. The Chain is the perfect music to wake up and get into the race. Just Drive makes me feel sleepy again!

    So, Sky always bang on about how it's uninterrupted coverage of F1! No need to take a swipe at BBC with that.

    It's a decent song, but doesn't hold a candle to The Chain. Just drive doesn't have that high-octane feel, it's more of a song that would fit perfectly with an end of season montage!!

    Actually they specify that it's only qualifying and the race that are uninterrupted. ^^

    I honesly have no idea who is going to win this weekend. I've learned not to trust practice sessions. Fingers crossed for a Lotus win though.

    I don't have Sky, all I went by was that massive billboard they had taken out near my house!!

    Would like to see McLaren or Lotus to win, but both teams really needed it to be dry just so they could see where they staood over the new updates. They will be going into the unknown now with the updates in quali.

    Would like to see a Grosjean win soon, but want LH this weekend!!!

    Rooting on Grosjean and Perez again, but with Grosjean's penalty, it'd gonns happen the hard way. Hopefully we'll get more rain this weekend!
