2013 German Grand Prix (July 5-7)

Less than a week after the controversial British Grand Prix, the Formula 1 circus has arrived at the Nurburgring for the German Grand Prix. Pirelli has brought a new specification tyres as the drivers have threatened to withdraw from the race if more failures occur.

In practice 1, it was business as usual with Hamilton leading the way from Rosberg:

F1 drivers are so spoiled and childish it's not even funny. So Pirelli messed up with the tire compounds? It happens in every form of racing but those drivers don't threaten to boycott races

Worried that the lack of exploding tyres might spoil the fun in F1 races?

Worry no more, the latest FIA trick is to send uncontrolled cars down the track at random times.

Very exciting!

No exploding tyres, just cameraman seeking ballistic tyres.

Apparently he's OK, but going to be sore for a while.

A pretty good race all told.. some nice close racing, a close finish for Vettel with a close Finnish behind him, and Mr Gross Trousers managed to both hold off Alonso and not crash into anyone.

Grosjean is a much better driver than he is usually considered to be, though, and if his crew went for the same strategy as Kimi the result might have been a bit different, I think. He's a man of the race for me this time, even though I was eagerly hoping that a certain Finn would grab the victory in the end.

P.S. Loved his 'I'm much faster than Kimi!' radio message

Grosjean is a pretty solid driver. The poor guy just has horrendous luck; in fact the only good luck the guy has is getting a second chance to race.
