This weekend the Formula 1 circus moves to Germany for the eleventh round of the 2020 season.
Held at the famous Nurburgring, the first time since 2013, the race will not be known as the German Grand Prix, but instead as the Eifel GP.
Over the years, F1 has staged 64 GPs in Germany, with Sunday's race set to be the 65th in a rich history. The German race, whether held at the Nurburgring or Hockenheim, has been subjected to substantial financial troubles the last decade or so, which led to the race not being staged on a few occasions.
Today we'll look at some of the winners of the German GP, as well as which teams made the biggest impression at the event.
The great Michael Schumacher made a huge impact on the sport. Not only did the German driver record several records to his name, but he is also the most successful at a German GP. During his first career, Schumacher won the event a record four times, but, in recent years, a certain Lewis Hamilton has made his presence felt.
Hamilton is tied with Schumacher on four wins but could register his fifth win at the event when the chequered flag drops on Sunday.
Juan Manual Fangio, Jackie Stewart, Nelson Piquet, Ayrton Senna, and Fernando Alonso have each won the race three times. Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen managed to do it only once: Vettel in 2013 and Verstappen last year.

The leading team
If you had to bet and say that Ferrari is the most successful constructor at the German GP, you'd be right on the money. The Italian team has won a record 21 events, followed by the now-defunct Williams F1 team on nine wins.
McLaren has eight wins to their name, while the Mercedes-AMG F1 team only has four. Red Bull tasted success twice at the German GP, while Renault could only do so once.
