Christian Horner says he will be taking his winter coat to the Nürburgring next week. While Formula 1 races in Europe are generally held in warm conditions, icy weather conditions are expected during the Grand Prix weekend. This year's calendar is slightly different due to the coronavirus.
"It will be a challenge," said the Red Bull Racing team boss during the press conference in Russia. "I went there once in May, and it snowed. I have also seen that races could get cancelled, anything can happen." Horner says he is prepared for everything. "It can also just be a nice weekend with the sun shining, but the winter coat will certainly go (with me)," he said.
Nürburgring held its last Formula 1 race in 2013. Sebastian Vettel won the German Grand Prix that year. In successive years, the Grand Prix took place at the Hockenheim ring. Vettel said that he is looking forward to returning to the German circuit, especially since fans will be in attendance. But he also expects it to get cold.
