Too right mate, the current Hockenheim is even duller than the unloveable Indy F1 circuit. It really makes me weep to remember what it was - a high-speed thrash through the forest that even rivalled Monza for sheer drama.

It is a shame that they demolished the old circuit. At least the new track has created overtaking oportunities. I really cannot think of any memorable battles at the old circuit. Sure it was special for the novelty of the long straights but the racing was not great.

In the era where overtaking in F1 cars was very hard, hockenhiem provided the most overtaking opportunity of the whole season. One need not look that far behind at the 2000 German GP for a good example.

@ Mark

We usually agree but this circuit is flat and boring but then again we all felt Bahrain and Valencia would be the same this year and both threw up good racing.

Apparently it is raining at the circuit which if continues should spice things up.
