The original Hockenheimring was built just after the end of World War II in 1932.
The track was actually originally an airstrip and motor racing was only added in 1938.
The track was redesigned in the 1960s and again in the 1990s to make it safer for motor racing.
The Hockenheimring hosted its first Formula One Grand Prix in 1970.
The circuit currently has an estimated capacity of 120,000 people.
The track has been the home of the German Grand Prix since 1977.
The longest straights on the modern track are 2.8 kilometres long.
The track includes 12 right-hand and six left-hand turns.

The track hosted its last German Grand Prix in 2018, with plans for it to no longer host F1 races in the future.
