The German Grand Prix looks set to be squeezed off the Formula 1 calendar for 2020. That won't be a huge loss, as last weekend it felt like Hockenheim had already given up
There's much to love about visiting the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
The beautiful neighbouring town of Speyer, with its Romanesque cathedral and al fresco dining; Mannheim, the starting point and destination of the Bertha Benz Memorial Route, the world's first automobile road trip; and Heidelberg, with its evocative gothic castle and vibrant Altstadt.
The Hockenheimring itself is not one of them.
Back when the circuit was Fortress Schumacher, and every grandstand was heaving beneath the weight of a capacity crowd wearing replica Deutsche Vermoegensberatung baseball caps, this was a veritable crucible of Formula 1 fandom. Few events could match the German Grand Prix for atmosphere, for the sheer passion of the crowd.
