The MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team of Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg are headed to their home soil for the German Grand Prix set to take place this weekend at Hockenheim. The track is well known to MERCEDES GP PETRONAS driver Michael Schumacher as he has won at Hockenheim three times since 2002 while driving for Ferrari.
Team McLaren Mercedes won two of the last three Grand Prix in Germany with Lewis Hamilton winning at Hockenheim and Fernando Alonso winning the European Grand Prix at the Nurburgring. In addition to the positive past German races for Mercedes, Rosberg is also coming off a podium finish at Silverstone, hopefully setting the stage for an equally if not better showing from both Rosberg and Schumacher this weekend.
