Description Eifel Grand Prix 2020 takes place over 60 laps of the 5.148-kilometre Nurburgring, former host of the German Grand Prix, on Sunday, October 11th. The big, scary Nordschleife version of the Nurburgring was completed in 1927. But after eventually proving too big and too scary for F1, Niki Lauda’s 1976 horror crash in the German Grand Prix forced a re-think, with the more manageable, more modern Grand Prix circuit opened in 1984, with a star-studded roll-call of F1 drivers – including Ayrton Senna, James Hunt, Lauda and Stirling Moss – racing around the track in Mercedes 190 saloon cars to mark the occasion.
Lewis Hamilton equalled the all-time record for career Formula 1 victories by winning the Eifel Grand Prix. The Mercedes driver's win was the 91st of his career.
Behind Max Verstappen's Red Bull in second, Daniel Ricciardo scored Renault's first podium since returning to F1 as a constructor in 2016.
