NUERBURBRING - Defending champion and 2011 Formula One leader Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull will be looking for his first win at home in the German Grand Prix on Sunday.
Vettel leads a contingent of six German drivers competing at the Nuerburgring, the most from any country. The group includes seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher.
Having won five of the first six races of the season, Vettel says the motivation offered by a partisan crowd in the stands could help him perform even better.
Schumacher and Vettel say young German drivers benefit from their country's economic power and can gain the financial support needed to launch their careers in such an expensive sport.
