World Vice-champion in 1999 Eddie Irvine believes that Formula 1 should return to the Nurburgring, but not in the standard ring European style, and the legendary and terrifying “Northern loop”.
From 1951 to 1976 years of the 22-kilometer Nordschleife track 21 time took the Grand Prix of Germany, but after the accident Niki Lauda for security reasons, left the calendar.
“What? Let’s bring the Formula 1 on the Nordschleife! Many modern tracks are boring in the extreme, said Irvine in an interview with Motorsport-Total. – Why not to get back on track with such great history, with so many turns, elevation changes and long range? F1 needs to cause excitement, and to go to Kazakhstan because of the fact that there willing to pay $ 20 million per race – is not an option”.
