Stats: home win eludes Vettel
Sebastian Vettel is far from short of trophies, but has yet to claim German GP honours, whereas arch-rival Fernando Alonso boasts plenty of success there, as Michele Merlino recounts
• Sebastian Vettel has never won his home grand prix, and has scored only one podium at the Nurburgring, second in 2009, behind his Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber. Nevertheless he has always scored points in his home race and he has also always qualified in the top 10.
• Webber scored his maiden pole and win here back in 2009. He was on pole again for the next Nurburgring F1 race in 2011, when he finished third, outfoxed in the pitstop sequence by Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso. He beat his team-mate Vettel in qualifying in both races held here, and has finished on the podium in his last three races at the track.
