Eifel Grand Prix live stream: How to watch the F1 action from Germany online from anywhere
Lewis Hamilton will get a second shot at matching Michael Schumacher's all-time win record this weekend as the F1 cavalcade heads to Germany with the return of a legendary circuit. Read on full details on how to get an Eifel Grand Prix F1 live stream no matter where you are in the world.
Marking the first F1 race at the iconic Nürburgring circuit since 2013 - this weekend's event looks set to be a bittersweet one for the Schumacher family - as well as the motor racing legend's record potentially being levelled, the former Ferrari star's son Mick is set to make his official F1 debut driving for Alfa Romeo in the practice sessions.
Those taking to the grid this weekend will likely be battling as much with the weather as other drivers, with heavy rain forecast for most of the weekend and Friday's schedule upended thanks to fog.
With seven races remaining, Hamilton will be looking to maintain his 44 point lead over his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas in the championship.
The British driver will be looking to avoid any of the elementary errors that cost him victories at both Sochi and Monza, and with wet weather a speciality, the champion-elect looks a good bet for getting back to winning ways.
