What time is the Eifel Grand Prix? How to watch on TV – practice, qualifying, race times

The Eifel Grand Prix is up next on the 2020 Formula 1 calendar – it's the 11th race of the season and it's live on Sky Sports F1.

Eifel Grand Prix

Just one race in the last month? That hasn’t been the F1 2020 calendar way all year!


Almost four weeks have passed since the Tuscan Grand Prix, and only the Russian Grand Prix has attempted to bridge the gap, with fans growing accustomed to triple headers throughout the season.

If you’ve been displaying F1 withdrawal symptoms, fear not, because you’re in for a treat in the coming weeks.

Prepare yourself for four races in just over a month, all held at unconventional tracks, starting with the Eifel Grand Prix at the Nurburgring.

Valtteri Bottas beat Lewis Hamilton for the victory in Sochi last time out, though the British star remains in pole position in the F1 driver standings while Red Bull superstar Max Verstappen split the Mercs once again.

Mercedes are unstoppable in the F1 constructor standings, but the midfield battle has bubbled, boiled and is ready to spill over in the weeks to come.

Ferrari are stuck in no man’s land, with Renault, Racing Point and McLaren all engaged in a terrific jostle for third place, a battle that doesn’t appear to be subsiding.
