The whole Germany is on the winning roll these days. While the country is in the mood of jubilation for being the best at kicking the decisive ball into the net, Mercedes is all set to add to this national celebration by proving their proficiency for making hybrid Formula 1 technology at their home grand prix. One Sunday witnessed Germany winning FIFA World Championship 2014, another can witness Germany making it again on coming Sunday by winning the German grand prix at Hockenheim.
The Mercedes team last won at home in 1954, thanks to the great Argentine racing car driver Juan Manuel Fangio. This time the responsibility of winning it back with a home car, after almost 60 years, lies on Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg. But since Mercedes have got the most sophisticated system of FRIC, it would be really interesting to watch how this ban on FRIC affects the order of the top team. The teams according to the top ranking so far are Mercedes, Williams, Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, Force India.
Among other German F1 drivers, there are Sebastian Vettel, Nico Hulkenbergand Adrian Sutil. Sebastian Vettel is already known as successor to Michael Schumacher. Just at a tender age of 27, he has in his account four world titles and more than 35 race wins. And, since he won the German Grand Prix last year at Nurburgring, he is practising hard to make it this time as well. Even he has got the fair chances tokeep the joy of Germany intact during this winning season. Being a local boy at Hockenheim, he is much more familiar with the track than any other Formula 1 drivers.
However, for Rosberg also it’s no lesser than a second home as he states, “Hockenheim is a crucial race for all of us, it’s the home Grand Prix for Mercedes-Benz and a second home race for me after Monaco, so I’m really focused on getting a top result this weekend.”Having gained such determination and talent, Germany is all set to win this Formula 1 championship giving its people yet another reason to take pride in.
With a home circuit around and having tasted a win recently, the German F1 drivers have the familiar and enthusiastic crowd to support them and their country. Let’s see who among the four drivers keep the German flag flying higher and higher this year. By winning this championship, these German F1 drivers can also wish Germany’s best, Michael Schumacher, the quickest recovery possible.
