The German Grand Prix is just around the corner as Formula 1 returns to the Hockenheimring, with Nico Rosberg on pole position for his home race.

Following a dramatic qualifying session on Saturday, which saw Lewis Hamilton crash out after a right-front brake disc failure, could today’s main event throw up a few surprises?

The Brit will be starting from 20th place, with his team-mate lining up at the very front for the fifth time in 2014. The Williams duo of Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa proved once again that the Grove-based outfit has the second fastest car and will start second and third.

Kevin Magnussen impressed in qualifying and will start fourth, ahead of Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel. Fernando Alonso, Daniil Kvyat, Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez will complete the top 10 on the grid.

Tyre degradation will play a big part in deciding the finishing order of the race, with Pirelli predicting two or three stops. Conditions remain warm, but temperatures should be a little cooler than they were on Friday and Saturday.

There is also the threat of rain, which could spice up the race and produce a few surprises. It should be a very interesting and hopefully action-packed German Grand Prix.

Throughout the race, Richland F1 will be providing live commentary via its Twitter account. You can follow @RichlandF1 here.

In the UK, the race will be live on Sky Sports F1, with coverage kicking off at 11:30 BST. The German Grand Prix itself gets underway at 13:00, with highlights being shown on BBC Two at 7:00 tonight.

In the United States you can watch the race live on CNBC, with coverage starting at 7:30am ET ahead of the race start at 8:00. It will also be streamed online here.
