The circus heads to the Nurburgring in Germany for the European Grand Prix, with a rejuvenated Ferrari tracking down championship leaders McLaren.
The Nurburgring is a standard European track, which means that overtaking is a tough proposition unless it rains. With a mix of corners, every aspect of the car is equally exercised, so a good balance, clean acceleration and stability under breaking is a definite requirement for going fast. Being aggressive over the kerbs requires solid bump handling, but is necessary to get the absolute most out of the lap.
With a tight, bumpy opening corner, the start of the race is typically eventful, so expect some casualties as things get under way: this is yet another reason why it is important to qualify well, in order to escape the anticipated mayhem.
