Considering 10 of the 23 Drviers' Championship titles have gone to drivers from Germany since the turn of the millennium (Michael Schumacher, Vettel, and Nico Rosberg), it feels strange that Germany does not host a Grand Prix.

The last running in 2019 was one of the greatest F1 races of the 2010s with Max Verstappen winning a rian-soddened race in his Red Bull.
