Despite the nondescript European GP title, Formula One gathered in Germany for the tenth round of the championship last weekend.
After the high speed Silverstone circuit and the test at Spa, the Nurburgring is a slower track, which became even slower still at various parts of the race weekend due to the rain.
The Nurburgring is a modern circuit in the style of several tracks revised during the late eighties and nineties. As such, it doesn't feature challenging high-speed turns and has several overly tight corners to break up the lap.
In many respect the modern Nurburgring is an average circuit on all areas of set-up; downforce, drag, brakes and engine power.
