Welcome to race day for the 10th round of the 2008 FIA Formula One World Championship, the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

After yesterday’s late weather disruption of the GP2 race, nobody is taking things for granted today as the forecast is yet again for showers in the region and an ambient temperature high of 20 degrees Celsius.

The race returns to Hockenheim after a year’s absence from the calendar, and will run over 67 laps of the 4.574 kilometre (2.842 mile) circuit, or 306.458 kilometres (190.433 miles). It starts at 1400 hours local time, which is two hours ahead of GMT.
