European GP Preview: Facts & Stats

Sean Kelly puts this year's European Grand Prix in context, and provides facts and stats on the hosting circuit, the Nurburgring

The European Grand Prix is one of the more nomadic events on the F1 calendar, having taken place at four different venues as a standalone event, and back when it was merely a name given to an existing event (as it was from 1950 to 1977), another eight circuits across the continent.

One such event was the first ever world championship Grand Prix - the 1950 British Grand Prix at Silverstone was also that year's European Grand Prix. Giuseppe Farina was the victor from pole position, on his way to winning the inaugural world title.
