The Eifel Grand Prix is the fourth one-off Grand Prix in the 2020 Formula One season. The race takes place in Germany at the legendary Nurburgring and is named after the Eifel mountain range and national park to the north-west of the circuit.
Although not officially the German Grand Prix, which dropped off the schedule in 2019, this is the only F1 race taking place in Germany in 2020.
The Nurburgring has hosted the German Grand Prix on a number of occasions, the last of which was in 2013 when Sebastian Vettel was victorious on home soil in his Red Bull. The circuit was also the home of the European Grand Prix between 1999 and 2007 when it was won by both Michael Schumacher (4 times) and Ralf Schumacher, and twice by Fernando Alonso.

Eifel Grand Prix Betting Tips
Note: The following tips are from the 2020 grand prix. Tips for next year will be added the week of the race.
The 2020 Eifel Formula One Grand Prix will take place this weekend and will be the 11th race on the rescheduled 2020 calendar. Sunday’s Grand Prix will be the first Formula One race to be held at the famous Nurburgring since 2013. The circuit has undergone several changes for the better over the years but remains a thrilling track, which should produce plenty of thrills and spills over the course of the weekend.
After 10 rounds, world champion Lewis Hamilton has dominated the series so far. The British ace has taken pole position eight times, winning six races along the way. However, after watching teammate Valtteri Bottas win the previous round in Russia, Hamilton will be eager to get back on top of the podium this Sunday. Of course, Lewis is the clear favourite to get a race win at the Nurburgring.
Lewis Hamilton Win – 4/9
Lewis Hamilton suffered penalties in a frustrating race at the Sochi Autodrom in Russia a fortnight ago. The Stevenage-born motor racing maestro has had enough to cheer about this season, but he will have been disappointed with how the GP in Russia went. Nevertheless, Hamilton is on 205 championship points, with Bottas in second with 161 to his name.
Lewis would equal Michael Schumacher’s record for Formula One Grand Prix wins if he claims victory in Germany on Sunday. If the Englishman wins this weekend, he will be looking to overhaul the great German’s record at the next Grand Prix in Portugal two weeks later. Hamilton looks nailed on to become Formula One’s most successful driver in the coming weeks.
Hamilton has won at this track before, winning the 2011 German Grand Prix, which was one of only three race wins that season. Lewis looks unstoppable, and we are backing the World Champion to bounce back and secure a seventh race victory of the season on Sunday at odds of 4/9.
Lando Norris Top 3 Finish – 14/1
Another British driver has also had an excellent season so far. Young Lando Norris, who is 15 years younger than Hamilton, has been superb this term, racking up an impressive 65 points. Norris is currently one of the best of the rest, with only Hamilton, Bottas and Max Verstappen ahead of the Bristol man in the current World Drivers’ Championship standings.
Norris picked up his first Formula One podium in the opening round in Austria and has since finished in the top five on three occasions. After finishing in fourth place in the Italian Grand Prix and then sixth in Tuscany, Norris had a tough race in Russia two weeks ago, finishing down in 15th spot. Nevertheless, the 20 year old will be desperate to hit back with a far better GP this Sunday in Germany.
Big things are expected of Lando in Formula One, and the youngster would love to end the season in fourth position. We fancy Norris to have a memorable race at the Eifel Grand Prix, and odds of 14/1 for the No. 4 to finish in the top three are just too good to turn down.
