Bridgestone: you never know with the Nurburgring

A different slot in the calendar, unusual weather conditions and a lack of testing at the track means the famous Nurburgring circuit could hold a few surprises for Formula One tyre suppliers Bridgestone at this weekend's European Grand Prix.

The race is taking place later in the year than usual, running in late July, compared to its more normal May date. This should mean hotter temperatures (although the current weather in the region does not support that theory), but that hasn't stopped Bridgestone opting for tyre compounds from the softer end of their range - soft and medium.
