Tell us about the Nürburgring circuit

It's one of the longer tracks, and one I know very well from when I was racing in the junior series in Formula BMW and Formula 3. I've always had a lot of fun on this track. In 2009, I made it to the podium for the first time in Formula One, when we got a one-two, and it was a fantastic experience thanks to the German fans.

Which part of the circuit do you like best?

Driving out of the Mercedes-Arena and into the Müllenbach loop is good, then down towards the Dunlop hairpin, you have to put it in third or fourth gear there. Then onto the Schumacher-S into the Warsteiner bend and back down towards the ADVAN arch.

Where's the best place for a fan to watch from at the track?

If you are looking for action, you should go for sections where overtaking is possible, so at the first corner. The fast corners are exciting as well: the Müllenbach loop, the Michael- Schumacher-S, and the section following the ADVAN arch, shortly before the chicane.

What's your best memory from the Nürburgring?

My first Formula One win there in 2009. That's got to be my best memory from that circuit by far and one of the best of my whole career. It was such a special day and to win it in the style that we did that day was incredible.

What are your thoughts on the circuit?

I prefer the Nürburgring to Hockenheim; it's got a bit of character about it, with some old school camber changes and old kerbs. The best part is Turns 5 and 6, the fast left which goes into the tight right.
