Though the modern Nurburgring is always compared to the Nordschleife Nurburgring circuit this is a difficult and unfair comparison. If you simply compare the modern Nurburgring to the other circuits on the calendar it is plain to see it is simply a great track with some fast and some slower corners. Also a few good overtaking opportunities, a good chance of changeable weather and a passionate crowd make the track in the Eiffel mountains a good place to enjoy formula one.
