The 2014 German Grand Prix (formally known as the 2014 Formula 1 Großer Preis Santander von Deutschland)[1] was a Formula One motor race that took place on 20 July 2014. After being held at the Nürburgring GP-Strecke in 2013, the race returned to the Hockenheimring near Hockenheim in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, which last held the race in 2012. It was the tenth round of the 2014 Formula One season, and marked the 75th running of the German Grand Prix, and the 61st time the race has been run as a round of the Formula One World Championship. The race was won by Nico Rosberg who started from pole.[3][4] The event was noted for poor fan turnout.[5] [6]

Report[edit]

Background[edit]

Two weeks before the race, the FIA announced an immediate ban on the Front-and-Rear Interconnected suspension system (commonly abbreviated as FRIC), effective as of the German Grand Prix, arguing that the FRIC system qualified as a movable aerodynamic device under Article 3.15 of the technical regulations.[7]

Qualifying[edit]

Hamilton's crashed Mercedes W05 being hoisted from the Sachs Kurve

Following a failure in his Mercedes' right front brake disc, Lewis Hamilton lost the control of his vehicle and was sent to the tyre wall of the left-handed Sachs Kurve. He was consigned to start 20th on the grid, his team mate Nico Rosberg snatching the pole. The crash left Hamilton "ok but sore", and he managed to participate on Sunday.[8]

Notes:

  • ^1  — Esteban Gutiérrez received a three place grid penalty as a result of an accident with Pastor Maldonado in the previous British Grand Prix.[11]
  • ^2  — Lewis Hamilton received a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change.[12]
  • ^3  — Marcus Ericsson failed to set a lap time in Q1.[9] He was later penalised with having to start from the pit lane and having to serve a 10 second stop and go penalty within the first three laps of the race, because his team failed to cover and seal his car before curfew and therefore breached Parc Fermé regulations.[13]

Standings after the race[edit]

  • Note: Only the top five positions are included for both sets of standings.
