In

voted driver of the day.

With his race to catch up with twelve well-made places, he was the star of the day.

We collected the votes from him and many other drivers.

60/60:

That's it!

Max Verstappen finished second, there was great cheering in yellow: Daniel Ricciardo successfully defended himself against the Mexican Perez and secured his first podium with Renault.

Carlos Sainz is fifth.

Nico Hülkenberg drives flawlessly and finishes the race "out of the cold" in eighth place - he started from last place.

Chapeau!

Sebastian Vettel finished eleventh and just missed the points.

59/60:

The battle for third place is coming to a head.

Perez is getting closer and closer to Ricciardo - can the Australian take it again?

The last Renault podium was nine years ago.

54/60:

Six more laps!

The hero of the day is already Nico Hülkenberg.

He has already made up twelve places and is now eighth in the points.

Sebastian Vettel experienced a used day.

is currently in 11th place. In the meantime, nothing will happen at the top - Lewis Hamilton is close to victory.

Daniel Ricciardo could finish on the podium for the first time in a Renault.

Hamilton secured the lead at the restart

49/60:

Verstappen

overslept

the start!

Hamilton can get a little breath right away.

Behind it, bitter battles for position are now beginning.

48/60:

It continues!

The safety car is gone.

Hamilton determines the time of the restart.

Can Verstappen collect it right from the start?

Magnussen and Vettel are NOT prepared to give up P11!

Formula 1 drivers dissatisfied with the safety car at the Nürburgring

47/60:

Hamilton and Verstappen complain loudly about the low speed of the safety car.

But there is still no restart.

It will be very exciting here again.

45/60:

It can go that fast - now comes the safety car!

Lando Norris' McLaren gives up the ghost, now it's getting really hectic again.

Lewis Hamilton's victory, which was believed to be certain, is now in danger again.

44/60:

The most exciting

thing

at the moment is the duel for third place.

Ricciardo is eleven seconds ahead of Perez, but he is constantly catching up.

Everything boils down to a duel soon.

Upside down world in Formula 1: Vettel in the Ferrari even overtaken by Hülkenberg

42/60:

Vettel is spared nothing today.

Now even Nico Hülkenberg, who started from 20th place and is driving a strong race, is getting it.

Shortly afterwards he drives into the pits - and to make matters worse, he is punished with a very slow stop.

Bitter for the Heppenheimer.

40/60:

Now the "point of no return" has been reached, which means: From the 41st lap, a pit stop is no longer worthwhile.

The tactic has an end.

Now all that counts is full throttle!

37/60:

At the top, Lewis Hamilton

does

his laps with

ease

.

Verstappen can't put him under pressure, he's just under eight seconds behind.

The Schumacher record could be set today.

34/60:

Vettel has now fought his way into the top 10.

Currently there are at least two points that the Heppenheimer would take home.

Leclerc is fighting for fourth place with Perez. Hulkenberg was now in the pits and is in 13th place.

29/60:

Lando Norris also has problems with the drive.

There is a great chance of a podium opening up for Daniel Ricciardo.

28/60:

Nico Hülkenberg drives a fantastic race and is already ninth.

However, it has not stopped yet.

As a reminder: He started from last place and did not do any training.

Madness!

26/60:

The next failure: Alexander Albon cannot continue.

Sebastian Vettel has switched to the hard tires and now wants to finish.

Team-mate Leclerc has not been able to handle his car one hundred percent since the first lap and has already dropped to tenth place.

Penalty against Raikkonen: The Finn clears a Williams

24/60:

Kimi Räikkönen clears Russell in the Williams, who then has to end the race.

Raikkonen receives a 10-second penalty for this.

Ocon also has massive problems and has to park the car.

20/60:

shock for Valtteri Bottas!

The Finn has to give up the race.

His car doesn't want anymore.

Lewis Hamilton is now on course for victory.

17/60:

The virtual safety car is coming.

There are debris on the route.

Shortly afterwards, however, it continues at racing pace.

Change in leadership at the Nürburgring: Hamilton overtakes Bottas

14/60:

There was a change at the top!

Bottas brakes himself, Hamilton says thank you.

The World Championship leader will also take the lead at the Nürburgring!

12/60:

Most drivers come in now and get fresh tires.

11/60:

Leclerc comes to the pits - Vettel with a little turner.

That cost him two places.

4/60:

The second repetition of the start shows: Vettel was too early on the gas pedal with his foot.

Because he brakes again shortly afterwards, he did not gain any advantage - but the action could still result in a penalty.

The stewards watch the scene.

Meanwhile, Antonio Giovinazzi made a dream start - he made up three places and is now in eleventh place.

Round 1 of 60:

Lewis Hamilton gets off well, but Bottas can defend his attack.

Everything stays the same at the top.

Sebastian Vettel has lost one place, Nico Hülkenberg has made a strong start to move up three places to 17th place.

BEGIN!

The traffic light goes out.

2:06 p.m.:

It's

getting

serious!

The drivers get into the cars, the pack slowly withdraws from the start-finish straight.

It will start soon.

2:02 p.m.:

The Finn

Valtteri Bottas

will start

from pole today

.

Him sit

Lewis Hamilton

and

Max Verstappen

in the neck.

It is quite possible that there will be movement at the top right from the start.

Hamilton can set the historic record Michael Schumacher with a victory.

It would be the 91st triumph for the British.

Update from October 11th, 1:48 p.m.:

Sebastian Vettel

and

Charles Leclerc

afforded themselves brakes

during the warm-up.

Is there something wrong with the

Ferrari

?

One can be curious.

The German will start on medium tires, most of the other cars will start on soft tires.

In an interview shortly before the race he said: “We have to do something different from the others.

I hope for a few points ”.

Update from October 11th, 1:25 p.m.:

With

Sebastian Vettel

and

Nico

Hülkenberg

, two Germans are surprisingly present at the Grand Prix of the Eifel.

Neither of them have anything to do with the top places for the time being - Vettel starts from 11th place, Hülkenberg taillight in 20th place.

Will they both manage to move forward today?

It's cold at the Nürburgring - the race starts at around eight degrees.

The failed Friday could make it one of the chaotic races of the season - the teams had almost no time to test strategies.

The lights will go out in a good half an hour!

Formula 1 in the live ticker: Hülkenberg steps in at the last second

Update from October 11th, 10.15 a.m.: Mick Schumacher

was not allowed

on the track

during training at the

Nürburgring

, the rain screwed up Michael Schumacher's son his debut in Formula 1. In return, the fans got to see another German driver.

Nico Hülkenberg

spontaneously replaced the sick Racing Point driver

Lance Stroll

.

Now it is also clear why the Canadian was out on such short notice.

“He was on the toilet the whole time,” explained team boss

Otmar Szafnauer

.

“So he was on the toilet the whole time and said: 'I got rid of so much fluids and I can't get away from the toilet long enough to get into the racing car,'” said Szafnauer.

Hülkenberg, who had already jumped in twice in the summer at Silverstone for Sergio Perez, who had suffered from Corona, wanted to go to the Nürburgring anyway thanks to his work as an expert for RTL.

“I knew he couldn't be far away.

So I called him and asked: 'How far away are you?' "Said Szafnauer.

Hülkenberg had to do a cold start and went straight to the start in qualifying without having driven a meter.

Formula 1 in the live ticker: Mercedes in the front row - Vettel disappointing again

Update from 4:13 p.m

.: Qualifying is over.

Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas set

the fastest race lap and secured pole position for the race on Sunday.

Team mate and world champion

Lewis Hamilton

starts from second place on the hunt for the Schumacher record.

Third was

Max Verstappen

in the Red Bull.

From a German point of view, the home GP has so far been less good.

Four-time world champion

Sebastian Vettel

finished eleventh in a Ferrari and missed the final qualifying section for the eighth time in the eleventh race of the season.

Nico Hülkenberg

,

meanwhile

, took 20th and last place - but without having driven a meter before qualifying

Qualifying is

currently running

at the

Nürburgring

.

Surprisingly,

Nico Hülkenberg is also there

.

The native of the Rhineland, who is replacing Lance Stroll at Racing Point, was happy about his comeback on the Sky microphone: “It was even wilder than the last time.

I was having coffee with a colleague at 11 a.m. and then suddenly I got a call from Otmar (

Szafnauer, team manager, editor

), who said I should get on my socks immediately.

It was a wild story again, but it was fun and I enjoyed it. "

Formula 1 in the live ticker: sensational comeback perfect!

Hülkenberg starts on the Nürburgring

Update from 2:28 p.m

.: Now it's official:

Nico Hülkenberg

is making

his next surprising

Formula 1 comeback

at the

Nürburgring

.

The Rhinelander replaces the Canadian

Lance Stroll

at Racing Point

, who had canceled before the final training for the Grand Prix of the Eifel on Saturday due to malaise.

The racing team confirmed this.

Hülkenberg

will start in the qualification for the eleventh race of the season (3 p.m.).

For the 33-year-old, it is the next lightning comeback for Racing Point.

In the summer he stepped in for Stroll's teammate Sergio Perez.

The Mexican had

dropped out

of both Grand Prix in England

after a positive

Corona test

Update from 1:25 p.m.:

In the third free practice session, Mercedes driver

Valtteri Bottas

towered over

his competition and set the best time in the unusual Formula 1 weekend at the Nürburgring.

The Finn in 1: 26.225 minutes relegated his team-mate

Lewis Hamilton

to second place by 0.136 seconds.

Hamilton could get his 91st victory on Sunday with a victory at the Grand Prix in the Eifel - and the

record

of Michael Schumacher

equalized

.

Sebastian Vettel

from Heppenheim showed a surprisingly good performance,

finishing fifth in his Ferrari.

Another German driver who did not take part in the race also came into focus.

After the Canadian Lance Stroll, according to his racing team Racing Point, “doesn't feel 100 percent well”,

Nico Hülkenberg

could

move into the cockpit.

The Emmerich had replaced the Racing Point driver

Sergio Perez

at the two races at Silverstone in August

, as the Mexican

had been infected

with the

corona

virus.

On Saturday lunchtime,

Hülkenberg

posted

a photo of his private car on Instagram at the Nürburgring race track - but Hülkenberg would have to present a negative corona test by the start of qualifying at 3 p.m., which could now prove difficult.

UPDATE: @lance_stroll is not feeling 100% this morning and will therefore not participate in FP3.

His condition will be assessed after the session to evaluate whether he is fit to drive, at which point the team will confirm plans for Quali. # F1 #EifelGP

Bizarre scenes occurred on Friday: the clock ran down from 90 minutes to 0 minutes twice, but the pit lane remained closed during the two training sessions because it was not possible to allow the rescue helicopter to take off.

That is why

Mick Schumacher

missed

his first training session in Formula 1, the Formula 2 leader should have driven an Alfa Romeo.

However, the 21-year-old always stayed with the team and later said: “I can attend meetings and get to know the inner workings of Alfa.

I want to get as much input as possible. "

Formula 1 in the live ticker: clear view without rain at the Nürburgring

Update of 10 October, 9:43

: The

Formula 1

will be a guest at the Nürburgring - and the joy large.

Motorsport fans were disappointed on Friday, however, because the training was canceled due to the weather (see previous updates).

Qualifying

is now

on the agenda on

Saturday

.

Can it take place?

It is currently looking good.

In

Adenau

in

Rhineland-Palatinate

, home of the

Nürburgring

, the weather experts are currently forecasting a clear view without rain or other disturbances.

In

all probability,

qualifying

can take place.

Who will secure the pole?

Formula 1 in the live ticker: Schumacher with huge bad luck - weather chaos causes training cancellation

4.10 p.m.:

And now the great news!

Today's Friday training session is completely canceled.

The conditions on the track make racing impossible.

The main fault is not the water on the route, but the rescue helicopter.

It could take off without any problems in an emergency, but landing at Koblenz hospital is not possible due to the visibility.

Therefore, the race management takes the only possible consequence - there will be no Friday training at the Grand Prix of the Eifel.

3:50 p.m.:

The weather at the Nürburgring is not getting any better.

The second training session will also be postponed, as the race management announced.

The further process is completely unclear - a chaos weekend is imminent.

More information will follow!

12.08 p.m.:

UN-BELIEVE-LICH!

The pit lane does not open.

This means that the first free practice session will be canceled.

So there is no opportunity for

Mick Schumacher

to sit

in the

Alfa Romeo

.

In the second free practice, he is not allowed to start, as team boss

Frédéric Vasseur

told Sky.

Will he get another chance later this season?

The French didn't want to talk about that.

In general, he

is an option

for

Alfa Romeo

in the coming season.

Formula 1: Grand Prix of the Eifel - chaos during the first free practice

11:59 a.m.:

Nothing new from the Eifel.

The first free practice ticks down mercilessly.

And Mick Schumacher is not allowed to get into his Alfa Romeo cockpit.

11.38 a.m.:

That's it - the free practice is postponed by 30 minutes.

But if you look at the fog in the Eifel, the situation will probably not improve anytime soon.

Mick Schumacher's big dream has been postponed.

And it is - unfortunately - quite possible that the first free practice session will not take place at all.

So that means for Mick that he won't get into the cockpit.

Update from October 9, 11:31 a.m.:

It looks like the first free practice session will initially be postponed by half an hour.

Update from October 9, 11:19 a.m.:

Really bitter for

Mick Schumacher

!

The free practice could not start because of the difficult weather.

But the clock is ticking, at 12.30 p.m. the session is definitely over.

But nobody is allowed on the track yet - does that mean that Schumacher has to postpone his F1 debut after all?

The big problem is the fog: The helicopter cannot take off and in an emergency it would not be able to fly to a hospital.

That's why everything is delayed here at the Nürburgring, safety comes first.

Really bitter for Mick Schumacher when you can't go out because of the rain.

Wait and see how the decision is made!

makes

his debut in the premier class

at the

Formula 1: Nürburgring in the live ticker - Mick Schumacher makes history

First report from October 8, 4:12 p.m .:

Nürburgring - what a weekend - the German Formula 1 heart is

opening

!

It's not just the return to the

Nürburgring

after seven years of abstinence that makes motorsport fans' eyes wet.

An absolute highlight of the “German Festival” in the Eifel is of course

Mick Schumacher's

Formula 1 debut

.

The son of Formula 1 legend

Michael Schumacher *

will be behind the wheel of a Formula 1 racing car for the first time on Friday.

In the

first free practice session

, Schumacher takes over the

from

Antonio Giovinazzi

.

He is following in the footsteps of his father Michael * and his uncle Ralf.

All of Germany will look to the debut - there is a certain pressure.

“I have a lot of respect for racing in front of the big names.

Having expectations would be unfair.

The anticipation is of course very great, ”he told

RTL

.

His job will be to collect as much data as possible for the team.

Because the Nürburgring has not been driven for seven years - it is therefore completely unclear how the 2020 cars will behave on the track.

Then there is the cold weather, it should be wet.

Long-time Mercedes * team boss

Norbert Haug

praised Mick Schumacher for being a "perfect driver".

Formula 1 in the live ticker: Mick Schumacher will probably get an F1 cockpit - Sebastian Vettel in a dispute with Ferrari

It is considered likely that the 21-year-old will get a permanent Formula 1 cockpit in the next season.

Alfa Romeo is the favorite.

A seat has already been cast for him - and both drivers do not yet have a contract for next year.

Will the signature follow soon?

With four races to go, he leads the overall standings in

Formula 2

.

“As a Formula 1 maker, I wouldn't let the opportunity pass,” said Haug.

An ancient photo recently popped up showing Mick with his father Michael *.

The second driver to have a home game is

Sebastian Vettel *

.

It is doubtful whether his anticipation is as great.

The cooperation with

Ferrari *

has been a farce for months - in the last race in

Sochi

there were again accusations and blame.

The Heppenheimer accused his racing team of deliberately using it as a brake block, which was immediately rejected.

But he doesn't have to grapple with the Scuderia for too long.

It has already been leaked what his

new car

at

Aston Martin

could look like *.
