Your guide to buying tickets and the best places to watch the action at the Hockenheimring for the 2019 German Grand Prix on July 26-28.The German Grand Prix made a triumphant return to the F1 calendar last year with excellent attendance on race day, and has now been confirmed to remain on the calendar in 2019, largely thanks to Mercedes Benz, which is headquartered in nearby Stuttgart, becoming title sponsor. The long forest section may be gone, but the spectating opportunities in the purpose-built Hockenheimring stadium are now much better and the race is well organized. Just five main grandstands are on sale at the Hockenheimring, but there are seven ticket categories; in general, the higher up in the grandstand you are, the more you will pay.

The Main grandstand (Haupttribüne) is located on the start-finish straight. If you are keen to see what is happening in the pits, plus the race buildup, start and podium celebrations after the race, then these are the best seats. Choose a different grandstand if you want to see on-track action.
The Mercedes grandstand is located between turns 8-10, but you’ll be able to see the cars from as early as turn 5 (Parabolika). You should be able to see some good passing moves here during the race, especially on the hairpin (turn 6) and into turn 8. On the downside, the Mercedes grandstand is further from the best off-track action in the F1 Village.
The most expensive tickets at the Hockenheimring are sold for the Südtribüne Oberrang, the highest Yellow section of the South grandstand on the final corner. The elevated views from this corner are excellent; depending on exactly where you sit, you should have a good view of the final corners from Mobil 1 kurve (turn 12) through to the Sudkurve (turn 17) and down the main straight. Lower down in this grandstand, the C-D sections offer better views than A-B, whilst the H is great for the race build up, start and podium celebrations after the race.
The best sections of the North grandstand (Nordtribüne) are the higher Blue B & C sections closest to the opening corner, which provide an excellent view for the race start; remember Felipe Massa rolling here in 2014? The A section is better for the pits action and race build up.
The Inner grandstand (Innentribüne) is located on the Sachs curve (turn 13) and offers views of the last few corners of the circuit, but not the start-finish straight. The lowest section in this grandstand is the main General Admission area at the circuit.
