Three time world champion Sebastian Vettel will be looking to break his drought at the German Grand Prix when the Formula One circus moves to his homeland this weekend. Despite winning 29 Formula One races right around the world, the Red Bull driver is yet to taste success at home. This year’s race will be run at the Nürburgring where Vettel was most recently fourth in 2011. Vettel has failed to reach the podium in Germany in each of the past two renewals of the race but was amongst the first three in both 2009 and 2010.
Compatriot Nico Rosberg is another man that goes into his weekend looking for his first home win and will be confident of victory having won two of the past three races this season. After winning in Monaco at the end of May, the Mercedes driver continued his good form by holding off Australia’s Mark Webber by less than a second to claim the British Grand Prix at Silverstone last weekend.
Fernando Alonso has enjoyed great success at the German Grand Prix in the past, with Rudolf Caracciola and Michael Schumacher the only two drivers who have secured more than his three wins at the event. Briton Lewis Hamilton is the only other man in this year’s field to have won here previously, having been first across the line in both 2008 and 2011.
